This was my first attempt to make a spoon. I used a design that my wife’s grandfather made, incorporating the Norwegian Rosemaling. I used Mahogany and a whole lot of elbow grease to carve it! The spoon is around 12” tall and finished with two coats of tung oil.

Beautiful spoon, being a spoon carver myself I can appreciate the time and patience it took to make such a smooth design.
Making spoons is very addictive.
Thanks for posting…. great job!

Excellent work for a first. I think you also did an exceptionally good job on the business end of the spoon. Many fail here (I know I have), but yours looks perfect to me.
