Made my first spoons today. Didn’t have a good bur bit so I dug them out by hand. They are about 7” long. Also had a sycamore tree come down on our land, so i turned a bowl from it!

Good looking work. Do you sign the bottom of your bowls?

Thank you, all! And, yes, terry, the spoons are addictive – keep thinking of making more! “sawdustmaker”- I put my initials and date on the bottom, scratched in with a pen. Trying to come up with a hot “brander” of some sort.
