After doing 7 sets of these for gifts I am finally able to post the picture of one set. I’m not use to doing more then one of something! LOL But they where “fun” and I thought they look pretty good for my first time! Ithink by using the hickory took me awhile to get the bumps out on the spoons but I think it was worth the effort of doing them…I think!

They are really pretty. What kind of finish did you use?

I took a set from my own kitchen and traced around them on hickory about 3/4 inch thickness. I had enough wood to when I had them cut out to go down the middle and get 2 from each piece. Saved ALOT of time doing that. On ours I made we kept the handles a little more on the thicker side and flatter then rounding the handles off. It just fit much better to the hand, no turning when using the spoons. Then we took my sander that is goes up and down to sand the edges off after putting a line down the middle of all the sides. On my spoons on the back spoon part I sanded the back to curve, Deb left hers more on the flat side. The scoop part after getting some information on what to use…a curved scraper we managed to get them where they weren’t so bumpy. No matter how much we sanded the wood wasn’t cooperating in that area. They aren’t perfect but that’s not the point. Right?? We used a salad bowl finish, which we put 3 light coats and let dry between each one and sanded with 400 & 600 grit. After the last coat I then used a paper bag. Gave it a reallly smoooooooooth finish. Now they will set to dry for 72 and then they will be usable.
I don’t mind doing a project…but repeating projects I really had a hard time just getting these done.
But it was fun-once. LOL
I choose the hickory, one it was in my shop, two after finding out people can be allergic to some woods this was my best choice without having to buy wood. Thanks for looking and the nice comments. It made it all worth the effort.
