I have not been able to get much time in the shop lately so to ease myself back into it I made a wooden spoon using mostly hand tools. Spoon making is a lot of fun!! I made the spoon out of some scrap ash wood, I used milk paint and clear lacquer on the handle. The oil did cause a small bit of discoloration on the handle because I did not apply lacquer down far enough.

I made a video while making the spoon please check it out!!

Nice! I like the “accidental” paint color blend.

That’s a good-looking spoon. Thanks for posting the video. I’ve tried making spoons a few times and always end up munting it somehow.

that came out really nice! Just curious- how does lacquer hold up being washed? Obviously its not DW safe, but I wasn’t sure about normal wear/tear.
