Although there are lots of great spoon makers on this site, my total inspiration came from jakapur. Had the tools to do it and saw a piece of wood to use so dove in. I was surprised that it went better than I originally thought it would. It’s spalted Oak finished with mineral oil.

Thanks for looking

Great job. That is a fine looking spoon. Each one you make will be a true work of art.

Way to go… did a heck of a job.

Nice. The spalted oak makes it really beautiful. Be sure and use it anyway.

You are definately not a “one trick pony”. Tables, wheels, boxes, wishing wells, etc, and now a spoon! Good job and some very cool wood.

It’s a nice spoon. I like it and it’s well done for the first.

I love seeing wooden spoons… each one is so unique. I like how the colors on this one turned out.

Have your say...
