Another hobby I've just and I mean "just" gotten into here is my first attempt at carving out a spoon from some harvested walnut and birch logs I've obtained. I think my hatchet needs a re profile as it could be biting in a bit better. Any of you guys done any carving out of spoons, ladles, or spatulas? Any tips? I've been in YouTube having a look. What a neat way to make a useful utensil. Thanks.

Spoons are a fun and quick project. They are great gifts too. The person the showed me how to make spoons suggested it is easer to scoop out the spoon first, before cutting the spoon to shape. You can hold in place easier. If you make a mistake shaping the bowl you can make it bigger an still have a project. Make sure the finnish is food safe.

Thanks for the info CV3. I've been looking at Walnut oil or as another find on the internet was a mixture of mineral oil

and beeswax.
