Since different species have different properties, I tend to lean toward softer woods when I'm carving lots of detail, and harder woods for functional items.  For functional spoons, I prefer walnut, cherry, birch, and poplar.  For love spoons and anything decorative, I like yellow cedar, tupelo, butternut and aspen.  I know lots of people who carve only basswood, but I don't paint anything that I carve, and basswood has no grain, so it's pretty boring for wood.


I know this is kind of long-winded, but I hope I've answered your question.

I don't know.  I usually cut several blanks and work them altogether.  Four scoops takes most of a day to do.  Baby spoons take a little longer, because the cuts are a little different and the bowl is carved different.

They look simple yet so beautiful. I'd gladly buy an entire set if any is for sale! Next you might want to consider carving forks, knives and straws too so that dining out is an environmentally-friendlier experience for you and family too. Heck, Id carve myself an entire utensil set too if I had your neat skills!

I have carved everything except straws.  I'm not even sure that's possible, but if it is, I'll probably find a way to do it.  I've also carved soup mugs and right now I'm working on a gravy boat.
