I’ve been experimenting with wooden utensils lately. Haven’t decided on a real good or efficient way to scoop spoon recess out yet. Have tried Dremel carving and sanding bits thus far. Any specific tool suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

I prefer a hook knife, such as the one from Pinewood Forge’s nice! It is used to cut mainly across grain and makes quick work out of spoons. Some people like straight gouges, but I can use this better. I sand the inside of the bowl using sandpaper wrapped around a small wooden ball that has a mandrel through it. I use a knife and sandpaper to shape the outside of the bowl and the handle. Not sure that I could make a profit carving working utensils for a living, but relatives like them as gifts!

Oh, you might make quick work of them with one of these .....but you’ll need something bigger than a dremel to take a 1/4” shaft. These cut pretty smooth compared to other burrs you might have tried.
