Hi friends, here is a maple spoon I carved down a few days back and I figured I would add it to the list!

Tools/materials used: Froe, hatchet, copeing saw, whittleing knives, hook knife, spokeshave, sandpaper, and some health store olive oil.

Thanks for looking!

I think this is my favourite out of all the spoons you’ve made so far Joe. I could eat my porridge with that.

That definitely looks like a spoon ready to get to work. How long is it? I am trying to figure out how big Andy’s bowl of porridge is.

Thanks everyone for the comments.

Kookaburra: The spoon is a little more than a foot.

Roger: The notch is just a fun design idea.

Jamie: Yes sir it’s a user!

I like the spoon, the handle reminds me of a wedge for a wooden plane.
