It was time to oil our wooden spoon, so I grabbed some pictures while doing it. As you can see, some of these spoons did not get regular oiling for quite some time, and have cracked. Hopefully regularly oiling can keep them alive for a while before they break.

The action shot was hard to get with the phone camera, and shows a rather large amount of coconut oil. I used less on other spoons.

Oh, I also forgot to add: I used coconut oil. It wasn't mentioned in the text of this BB, but was referenced in the videos as a suitable wood oil. This is what we've always used for spoons, knife handles, cutting boards, and such as my partner has had allergic reactions to tree nuts in the past, and coconut isn't a true tree nut.
 
Oh. Hi guys! Look at this tiny ad:
