Here are a couple of spoons I've carved. The bottom one is roughly teaspoon size and needs a bit more finishing with sandpaper. The top one is good to go. Before I actually start using them I want to seal them. From what I've read, it seems that walnut oil is the best for sealing wood that will come into contact with food. Obviously to be avoided if you have a nut allergy, but it has a better taste than linseed oil. Not sure what other options there are. I don't want to leave the wood as it is, as it is likely to soak up whatever I use it in. Still I'm happy with the look of them, and if I can get walnut oil, then I look forward to using them too.
