I told my friend, Roger, I’d make a spoon out of box elder log he brought me, but it was not long enough for the usual muffin master spoon. So I turned a short one out of the BE and 2 regular ones out of Cherry and I’ll give his wife one of each!

The are finished with Danish oil, dried 3 days, and 3 stage buffed and waxed

They look very sturdy Jim. Good for mixing a big batch!

Looks like a good selection of spoons and something I could try but how did you hollow out the spoon part ?

These are great looking spoons Jim. I especially like the handles on the first two. Nice work!

As long as they have two, they can go spooning. They look great Jim. I prefer the cherry.

Thank you all for the nice comments. They are fun to make and work real good when I make muffins.

I hollowed out the spoon part by drilling a few shallow 1/2” holes and then I use a 3/4” carbide burr in a die grinder and cut the shape very closed to finished. Then I use one of those sanding balls like I just made to finish out the shape so there were no dips or ridges and hand sand to finish.

Hi Dave. I’ll tell Roger that!!

Cheers, Jim

Gorgeous! I really like how thin the rim is made. Are they power carved or hand carved??

Thanks Brian and Lew and Bob!!

Hi Lew. I power carved them and power sanded them . I have some in the kitchen I use all the time and that scoop is just big enough for one muffin! I did some trial and error before drawing out the end size. The round wood is a whole lot easier on your hand for mixing that thick batter than a metal spoon!

Cheers, Jim
