Something I never would have thought to make. Nice! Love how natural they are...

Does it take long to make one? And how did you get that one to be yellow?

Beautiful! I love the colour of the osage orange one. I had no idea the wood was that colour. Is it a difficult wood to carve?

Time depends on the wood and the pattern.  These are basic spoons, so most of them can be done in a couple of hours.  The yellow one is the natural color of the wood.  I've never carved the osage orange before, so I had to try.  It's a very hard wood.  I carved the bowl with a carving bit that I put into my drill press, and the rest of it with carving knives.  Took me more than three hours just to get the handle done.
