These are maple spoons for Christmas gifts. They were made from scrap maple in the burn bin at Kamp Hardwoods. The darker ones are from a 4×4 sticker board that was twisted and the others are made from a piece of 5/4 cutoff. They are finished with Behandla salad bowl finish. I turn the handles and then shape the heads with a 3/4” carbide rotary burr.

Those spoons look very nice and you did a fine job on them.

Fantastic spoons! I have been “in process” of making some wooden spoons myself and I know from experience how satisfied you must feel having made these wonderful spoons. I really like the wood with the dark streaks in it.

I need some of these. We bought some cheap wooden spoons a few years ago and they are our favorite for cooking. We just broke the second as they are not very strong and now that we are down to the last one I really need to give this a shot. Thanks for the inspiration.
