Hello all. My wife has been wanting a large spoon for a while now, she gave me a picture of what she wanted & this is what she got. It’s just about 8” long, 1 1/2” thick with a 3” cup/bowl on it. I used maple as a base wood with morado rosewood (I think it’s part of the rosewood family) for the handle & ring around the spoon. The top of the spoon is purple heart & a little piece of yellow heart on the handle to break it up a little. I burned her initial “T” in the handle. Let me tell you, this was a lot of sanding, my carpal tunnel is killing me from this one. I finished it off with my favorite, tung oil. But it was worth it, it’s for my wife! I know it’s not much, but it was fun to make & I made some brownie points with the wife, how could you go wrong with that? Thank you for taking a look & have a terrific day!!
Mark

Great looking spoon Mark and original too. Nothing better than making something cool for the wife.

Nice spoon Mark, I like your lamination’s. I am sure your wife is happy. I find it’s easier to get shop time when I come in bearing gifts for her from time to time. LOL

Dang…. now you go and make me look bad. I’ve made a bunch of spoons… but never one for my wife. I gotta make sure she doesn’t see this. Good job on the spoon.

Thank you guys, ya she likes it. I’m not sure of it’s intended use yet, maybe a wall hanger. She just wanted one like this so, I made it. This is a what I would call a band saw spoon. I cut out the shape with a band saw, used my dremel to shape it & routed out the bowl with a round bit. With a huge order of sanding on the side!! LOL
Have a great day guys.

Thats cool Mark, now you need to make a big cereal bowl, LOL. Any project that was fun and scored brownie opints with the wife was well worth it.

-- Martin ....always count the number of fingers you have before, and after using the saw.
