This as the title states is a ladle or perhaps a chili spoon carved from a billet of maple. The drop shaped knot wasn’t pure accident, but did turn out better than expected, because I centered the carving within the wood.

Finished with beeswax and olive oil. Pictured also is the crook spoon I used to carve it, which I made from an old steak knife and a chunk of hickory from my broken hatchet handle. This is my second spoon carving, and I’m please with the results. I recommend trying it.

Thanks for looking!

Thanks! I highly recommend not using cured wood, as most carvers know…far more difficult. Also, a curved scraper will save a lot of sandpaper.

Nice original design. I love your homemade crook knife. I made one a while back from a small paring knife
we had in a kitchen drawer.

Beautiful spoons! Like the shapes especially the unique handles, the knot added a nice accent. Great job!
