Hey there, this is just a maple spoon i made. I got a dremel for Christmas and thought it’d be fun to try it out on a spoon. Turns out it was a lot more work than i thought it’d be. I was originally trying to go for a stirring spoon, but somehow i came out with this medieval style soup spoon haha. I used a router to hollow out a lot of the bowl of the spoon. Lots of sanding and burring. Thanks for looking. Maybe next time i’ll come out with that stirring spoon i was going for originally.

One of the great things about making spoons is that however it comes out, it’s never wrong. Just maybe not quite how you envisioned it.

This looks good. You learned from it , so it only gets better.

You did a great job on this spoon. It really looks good and I bet it feels good in the hand.

Nice Spoon!

If my Mom had one of these when I was a kid, I’d would have probably turned out a little better ;^)
