Made these out of scrap. The 1st pic is redbud and the other pics have spoons made of redbud, cedar, and walnut. Made these as gift’s for my relative’s coming in from Wisconsin.

I cut out “blanks” on the bandsaw and then used a belt sander/shaper and a dremel tool and a LOT of hand sanding. Each spoon went through a process (5 times) of olive oil, then washed, then sanded down again. They are right where they need to be now…..................DONE!

The first pic is the last spoon I made in this session and the best. I really like doing these things….it’s quite addictive! LOL

Nice work Jay, I think about doing those and think “blisters”. LOL They look incredible and would be worth every blister.
