Unlike those beautiful Swedish spoons that have been the talk of the site lately, this is a dry wood spoon.
I cut the basic shape with coping saw then finished with chisels, rasps, and files. Hoping someone on this site can help me with the wood.. I scavenged a couple 3” by 3” pieces off a pallet that had Brazil burned into the wood so I am assuming that its from south America somewhere. I have no Idea what it is.. I do know that its very hard and is tough to work with carving tools. cuts good, but its hard. So a little help.. it has no stain on it, just a couple coats of Danish Oil so that’s pretty much the wood color. Its about 11” long and 1 3/4” wide at its widest point. thanks for looking Papa..

Love the spoon. No clue about the wood.

Can’t help with wood identification, but can say nice spoon.

Very nice spoon, I also have no idea about the wood species.
