These are a couple of spoons I did a little while ago. One is buckthorn and the other is birch. They’re a lot of fun to do.

These are beautiful!

Have you considered doing a blog or “how-to” on making these?

Nice work. Spoons aren’t as easy to make as they might look.

Good idea Lew, I’ll try to put all the steps on paper concisely and see if I can do a brief blog that makes sense.

These are beautiful, well done. I have just had a go at making a few food utensils with moderate sucess. Was just wondering what is a good food grade oil to use on them initially.

I just use pure tung oil – not the stuff mixed with solvents and such, just pure. It takes a number of coats to build up a nice finish, but they’re small so it doesn’t take long to do.

MrDan ~ That Buckthorn is a great looking spoon… well made and you definitely optimized the grain on that one. I was just wondering if you know of/or have any spoons in Norman Stevens’ collection. If you don’t know… he is putting together the largest collection of 9” spoons and I believe is still looking to add any ‘spoon-makers’. You can do a google search under Norman Stevens spoons and easily find a link. Good work.
