This was my first attempt of carving the bowl of the spoon completely by hand it was hard to stop tear out when i went with the wood grain,to stop this i had to go across the grain which worked great!,i really like the way it turned out.The spoon is Zebrano wood finished in food safe oil.This wood is really pretty!

Really great looking spoon…. especially for your first attempt.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Thanks,I have been reading your blogs on spoon making they are a great help!What wood types are a not suitable for spoon making?Im just limited on what I can do at the moment as I have a limited selection of tools.I really want to make some decorative spoons using a spoon shaped like this, i want to carve a celtic design into the handle on this one.
