If I’m making cooking spoons for friends and family, I use three tools: Band saw to rough out the blank, 1/2 inch ball Kutzall burr in my Dremel to hollow out the bowl, 3 inch sanding drum to shape the outside of the bowl and the handle. Currently have a 16 inch spoon with a 1 inch thick handle sitting on the shelf waiting for me to have time to sand the inside of the bowl – Son wants it for making big pots of Jambalaya. I don’t think I’d ever attempt to sell any spoons – I can make more $/hour carving Santas, and even there, I couldn’t live on what I make carving. There are way too many imported spoons that are cheaper than the cost of wood.

Having said that, if you want to sell hand-carved wood spoons, go for it! The suggestion to look at ETSY is a good one. Here’s a link for you: https://www.etsy.com/search?q=carved+wood+spoons&order=most_relevant&view_type=gallery&ship_to=US
