In a prior project I posted my first attempt at making spoons. Here is a new one. 2 completed out of walnut, 3 more in progress… 2 walnut, one cherry. (3 or 4 will be Christmas gifts)

(not sure I like the cherry one.. didn’t get a good grain match on the lamination. will have to see how it looks after finishing)

How I did it:

I traced around my wife’s favorite plastic spoon. It just fit corner to corner on an 8.5 by 11 sheet of paper.

I used 3/4 stock walnut 2 & 5/8 by 13” long and laminated another 5” piece near one end for the business end of the spoon. Cut out the patterns.. Spray adhesive to apply to the side profile first, cut out on band saw then applied the top profile the same way and cut out. I gouged out the bowl primarily using the end of my belt sander then a spindle/drum sander in my drill press.

Nice work Lalen. I’m sure she has a new favorite now.
