I used wood from the same honeyLocust 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.

Ash Glamour Shot, The stout piece of grain on the right was cleaved.
I was considering combining them into a compound mallet, but both pieces are green so that would have been a fail I guess.
Roughing tools Actually ended up using a thin chisel to gouge the bowel and a straight blade Stanley knife for the fine work.
Honestly no way to improve the bowel at this stage without some blade with a curve to it. Which I just don't have at the moment.
Learning see. Paul was right.
I will be coming back to this spoon and improving the finish when I obtain the correct equipment and it has dried a tad.
