Looks good Mike.  One day, I will make a spoon as good as Barn the spoon :)

I used wood from the same honey Locust limb for this spoon as for the simple mallet, compound mallet, and coat hanger. At the risk of rendering it not quite useless enough, it seemed like the handle end wanted to be a spatula, so I went with it. It’s big. It’s ugly. It’s nearly useless. It’s ... a Spoontula.

I made a stirring spoon!

I harvested the wood from some kind of bush maple.

I drew the piece across the knife that I hammered into a log. That seemed to give more control and power as long as I was cutting with the grain.
