Nice work and each and every spoon is, in and of itself, a treasure for whoever owns it. That spalted maple is sometimes TOUGH to work with and get it to do what you want it to! It has a mind of its own. LOL

We are not planning on using the cedar spoon. I was actually just practicing.

Looks like you could use some of the apple wood they burn here, just a little west of you every year. I made a few spoons and spurtles with some and they turned out nice.
