This is my first post in a long time, and my first stirring spoon too.
I had a wild ambition last night, and decided to make a new spoon for the kitchen.

Looks good to me.

Spoons are trickier than they look to make.

Nice Job!

Beautiful wood! On your next one, make the handle much thicker – say, 3/4 inch or so. 30 years from now, it will be easier to use with older hands. :)

Pretty cool. It’s interesting to see the chunk of wood and then the spoon that you created from it—like sculpture and block of marble.

I’m curious about the angle grinder with the flap disk—did that setup work well to help shape the spoon? What grit(s) did you use? Were you able to get into the concave side of the spoon? Is your grinder variable speed and do you think that is helpful or not for this use?

Thanks for sharing.

Cool. Did you use the grinder with that wheel to do it all?

Pretty easy to make spoons, pick a tool, and remove everything that doesn’t look spoon like, looks like you stopped just at the right time. :-)

Nice job. I have made a few of these myself and they are fun to make and to use.
