Decided to just dump all this at once. There are 4 spoons and 4 knives and 2 “some-kind-a” boards. Cheese boards? Cracker boards? LOL Dont know what they will be called but they look good!

The woods used were cedar, sycamore, sassafras, and walnut. The big walnut spoon is NOT food safe as I coated it with spray poly. All others were finished with olive oil and the one cedar board was left unfinished. Thanks for the looks and comments.

You have been a busy guy. Those are so unique. Got to try my hand at making some spoons.

I’m thinking we need to have a bar-b-we at your house and try all this stuff out! Beautiful job as always.

For your information, all finishes when fully cured, is food safe! The key word is “when fully cured” different finishes dries at different rates so some will be food safe in a couple days and others not for a few months.

Bearpie—-Thanks for the info. I just assumed that poly would soften/degrade in say like hot dishes…soups, chili, casseroles.
