Since I made the flat spatula’s at Christmas, I’ve been experimenting with some designs and figured out how to do regular spatulas and different types of spoons. Unlike the others, most of these aren’t made of scrap wood. because of the thickness I had to use 6/4. they are all cherry and walnut. And the plan is to make enough to sell at a local flea market next august and to sell at christmas. I have sold a few just by word of mouth. And I am considering putting a website up, just have to figure out how to do that. I use a dremel rotary tool to carve out the bowls of the spoons. Everything else is shaped with my oscillating belt sander and hand scrapers.

Loved the Christmas spoons. These are an upgrade. I still have a roughed out walnut spoon sitting near the sander I started after your last spoon post. Gotta finish that someday!
