Here’s my kitchen utensils that will hopefully make my daughter and nieces happy for Christmas (my wife has already picked her favorites)
They are made from walnut, cherry, mahogany, quarter sawn oak and some hickory from the yard
These are the first spoons I’ve made and I’ve had a blast doing them

Those are beautiful!

I can never get mine that smooth on the inside.

I use an Arbortech ball gouge to rough it out and a card scraper and sandpaper to get it just right
It doesn’t take long to get better and better at it

Wow, that’s a lot of really beautiful spoons and such. I really like the dipper with the bulls eye pattern. And at risk of showing my age, that one with all the holes makes me a bit nervous.

Nice collection of treenware, looks like you figured out how to make them both smooth, and deep, nice work.
