Hey everyone,
Here are some spoons from plum and cherry!

Length about 9 1/2 and bowl widths around 1 1/2.

Finished in flaxseed oil from the healthfood store.

Have a wonderful holiday season and I thank you for your inspirational work!

I like the way you used the lighter wood for the bowls. The flax seed oil is shinier than I thought it would be.

Nice spoons and the finish is great. Sure could use one of them for my wife’s plump pudding (Yorkshire term for Christmas pudding!).
Wish you and yours a Merry Christmas!

Good work Joe. These are real nice spoons. Here in Norway young men would make something for a girl he was interested in. Wooden spoons were often the project of choice for a prospective suitor to demonstrate his skill and general usefulness. If the girl refused the gift it meant she wasn’t interested.
