I made these salad utensils as a gift. I carved them by hand using a carving gouge, knife and spokeshave. This is made out of poplar wood. I sanded it smooth and finished it with mineral oil.

Nice salad set, Paul! I have made several, but finish with olive oil, since that is what I cook with (mineral oil is safest, because of potential allergies…). Robson Valley has convinced me that the way to finish is to heat the spoon in an oven for a bit, then let the oil soak in to the hot spoon.

Thanks helluvawreck. Claude, I have never used Olive oil as I thought that this is a type of oil that can go rancid. I don’t remember where I read/heard that before but I will have to look into that again. I will try heating the spoon in the oven and see how that works out. So far I have just done finishing at room temperature. Thanks for the tips.
