Cut the blank out on bandsaw and hand-sanded the rest of it. Took 2 hours to sand/shape it down but it turned out well.

Made out of sassafras. Measures 12’’ long and “spoon” itself is 2’’ across x 3’’ long.

Applied 4 coats of mineral oil to it. It’s a surprise for my sister. Thanks for looking.

That’s a nice big spoon- great for stirring chili or like my my Mom who used to use on my bottom on a regular basis.

Have you had any trouble with sassafras? I have heard some folks are allergic to it?
