Not my first spoon, but the first one that I really liked.

It has cracks going crossways so I wouldn’t use it in the kitchen, but I loved the look of them.

It flows nicely. What finish do you use?

Thank you @socrbent – Finish is food-safe Organoil Interior burnishing oil.

Nice shape! Fill the cracks by pressing CA glue into them. Do it several times until flush with surface. Sand smooth! I can’t guarantee “food safe” for you but I use it all the time on various items and it seems fine to me. They use it in the field and hospitals as “skin glue” but of course that has been sterilized I guess. As if anything could live in that nasty smelling stuff.
