Here’s a little Birch spoon made mostly on the lathe, the bowl of the spoon was carved with the dremel. Sanded smooth and finished with mineral oil and beeswax. The black lines were burnt with copper wire. We got the wood from a neighbor who had the tree laying in his yard over a week.Thanks for looking, this was a fun little project.

Nice work! I like the burned in lines from your copper wire.

Nice detail on the handle. How long is the spoon?

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Thanks everyone! The spoon is about 10” long, handle is about 5/8” thick to 3/4” at the widest, bowl is almost 2” wide x about 3” in length. Real comfy in the hand.
