I was actually going to post this the day LJ Jeffro posted his horse. After seeing his horse I just didn’t feel like posting a spoon :-)

It’s red cedar about 14” long.

Thanks for looking

Anything outta cedar is nice and you did a good job on this. Keep it up!

I love this! You spoon-making-guys are making me REALLY want to make spoon. I just do not know where to find the green wood. Do you think the neighbors would notice if i went over and cut a branch off in the middle of the night?

At 14” long that is a heavy duty spoon (weapon). That piece of cedar is pretty dark compared to what I get down here.

I don’t have room for the horse – gimmie the spoon.

So a question – is green wood best for a spoon, I have made a couple out of hard dry wood and they nearly broke my heart along with some of my tools.

I use dry wood and basically soak it in mineral oil as soon as I can. Don’t know about others.
