My friend Melanie’s baby turned 1 year old last weekend, so I decided to make her a couple wooden spoons. She’s starting to use utensils now and since Melanie and I took that Utensil Making Class together at Knowhow Shop, I thought it would be the perfect gift.
First I went to Babies R Us to buy some baby spoons as a template, since I know nothing. That was a nightmare. I drew out what I needed on a pieces of Maple amd Cherry and headed over to Knowhow Shop, where they milled out some spoon bowls for me. Then I took them to school and cut out the rough shape on the band saw and then sanded on the belt sander. After that was a couple hours of hand sanding. I tried to get Adrian to help me sand, he lasted about 7 minutes. I think they turned out pretty great!
