Neat Idea.
I really like the lettering. What is the font? What Cutter did you use? and how deep did you cut?

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?

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:
