This is a great way to make the bowl of the spoon without any special tools! This method seems more accurate as how people would have made spoons minus the dremel.

your spoon's a bit sloppy. try using a knife and sanding by hand also your bowl is a bit unorthodox hook knives do a good job. an exemplary spoon is the one morfmir made.

A hook knife (,130,43332,43393&ap=1 ) will give you a nicer result for finishing the bowl of the spoon. Use a scraper to prep the wood prior to final sanding and finishing. For finishing use a food grade wood sealer or walnut oil. I would use maple or a similar smooth, tight grained wood for best results. Avoid resinous woods like pine and cedar, as they will leach through the finish and give you food an odd or unpleasant taste.
