Have oak staves from a retired Wine Barrell, made a Very Large spoon for my Grandaughter, she goes camping in a group, and cooks in a large Cauldron over a fire. The first 2 pics are of that spoon..32 inches long, approx 4 inches at the stirring end.
The last 2 pics are of a spoon for a friend who cooks in large pots, stews, sauces, and he keeps breaking store bought. It is 18 inches long, and approx 2 3/4 at the stirring end. Both finished with Mineral Oil.

Have a chef friend who said the same thing about store bought spoons and how poorly they are made.

Those are great… should be a market for something so unusual.

Finished in Mineral Oil? For food?

Milton, have received that advice, to use it, from some seasoned woodworkers/carvers. A buddy of mine was a cook in the Army, they used it to wipe down all the Food Slicers in the mess…..
