Neat Idea.
I really like the lettering. What is the font? What Cutter did you use? and how deep did you cut?
It is what it is!
Have a great day.

How will you hang the spoons?
Or how do you plan for them to be displayed?
Is this a two sided machining project? What does the flip side of the spoons look like?
You can tell that I really like the project because I am asking all kinds of questions.
The concept of a family spoon interests me.
After making this set, what would you like to do differently if you made another spoon?
It is what it is!
Have a great day.

I don't think I'm going for display or hanging. Just made them for my family to actually use them. 1st draft was in Oak. I still need to edit a bit, there is a step on the back where the convex meets the handle back. ( See Picture )

I may thin the thickness down too!

If I stay interested long enough I might make a full set of sizes as Christmas gifts. :lol:
