This is my first attempt at making a spoon. It is made of Alder, and finished with food-safe oil. Not much to it, took like 1 hour to make .

Does not look like a first attempt. And embarrassingly so, it takes me longer than that. Good work!

It’s very nice! It looks very comfortable to hold too. Would you mind divulging your secrets? I’m very impressed that it took an hour to make… dumbfounded even!

Pretty good effort in an hour, I’d say.

WayneC: no I didn’t power carve. Just used a bow saw, chisel, gouge, rasp, and some sand paper.
