We’re planning a little trip to visit some friends next week so today I made another spoon that I can leave with our gracious host who will be accommodating us for a few days. Made from another piece of birch off the woodpile, small inlay of jatoba and maple, finished only with olive oil so it can be used with food.

I really like the way you’ve ‘dammed’ the back of the spoon bowl. Gives it a sort of wrapped effect. I also like the resting hook on the back of the handle.

I made one similar to yours, a few years ago. but very basic…we don’t use it much but it’s nice to have around the kitchen. I too like the hook on the back handle. If I make another one, I’ll incorporate that into it. Mine was made out of pine.

I’ve promised myself to try one of these over the holidays. Yours is fantastic Clarence. Really like all the details you put into it like the inlay and “dam”. Wonderful piece of functional sculpted art. Love it!

Thanks for all the nice comments.

I too like the hook because the handle doesn’t fall into the pancake batter when you put it back into the mixing bowl….

Chip, post yours if you get a chance to make one. Spoons are a lot of fun, really most of mine don’t take much more than an evening at the bench, and people always seem to enjoy them.
