I have been making a few cooking scoops for my stock to sell, they are roughly around 190mm to 230mm long.
This one is from Norway Maple, very nice wood, tough to carve but finishes well and has lovely flecks in the wood.
This one is from Plum, it has some nice spalting in it.
Lastly one from a large piece of Lilac I managed to get, it was 7 inches in log with no rot in its centre.
I love Lilac for carving it finishes really well with the knife, this one was from the heart wood and the sap wood just started to come through when carving the bowl.
