Was the Osage orange hard to work? We have it here but call it Beau D'Arc (bo-dark, long 'o'). The natural yellow color comes through clearly in the first photo. Have you used any sealant on the spoons? If so, what?

The osage orange is a hardwood, so I used power tools for it.  A Dremel gets it done very nicely.  There is no finish at all on this spoon, but most of the time I finish with a little bit of mineral oil, the food safe kind you find in a pharmacy.  I always tell anyone who gets one if my spoons to make sure it is oiled again after washing with soap.  Otherwise the wood dries out and splits.

Thanks for the info! Not that I'll ever try carving wood since I don't expect to live to 150. That's approximately how long it would take me to finish all my other projects before I could start woodcarving.  Grin Guess I'll just be satisfied admiring your work.

Just so you know, I didn't start carving seriously until I retired, about five years ago.  It's never too late to start, but I know what you mean about having too many projects.  I think I need to live to at least 100.

I tried making some French stacked bows. I think they turned out good. They were super easy.

Wow!  Those look great.  Are they for putting on packages, or for your hair?

So, they have a clip for putting in your hair?  How sweet.

I love the wooden spoons.

The bows are cute. I like to put bows on my dog's collar. Love the red plaid one.
