Maple Spoons. I soaked them in Mineral Oil and after the first use had to take them back and sand the raised grain. Now I soak them, run them under hot water, sand with 600 grit and re-oil. seem to work just fine.

Thanks for sharing as I was having the same issues with my ash spoons! I guess the trick is to wash them first….then do the final sanding. I was going in that direction already but wasn’t sure that’s what I had to do…..

My spoons are very similar to yours. I’m also making some using cherry and they look nice.
