Of course. Not nearly that large, however.

When I was in the 8th grade, just learning how to deal with my hook where my left (and dominant) hand had been, I did a bunch of different things to improve my skills in its use. Macrame (with embroidery floss, mostly), and wood carving. I made several wooden spoons, and a couple of wooden ladles. The trick is finding a good hardwood branch the correct size with the right bend in it, then sawing out your blank with a coping saw, finishing it with a good sharp knife and a scoop blade. It was kinda fun, even if I did manage to carve my own skin a few times.

I gave them all away, mostly to my Mom. I do know that my oldest brothers wife has the larger ladle I made - it holds one full cup, has a 16" long curved handle, made of ash. She uses it in her deep stock pot when she is making a big pot of soup, or beans.

That one I cheated on a bit - I made it from a big gall on a large limb, and steamed it after rough shaping so I could reverse the curvature of the handle portion away from the open axis of the cup. Most of the cup carving I did rough removal with stepped passes with large forstner bits, with the bowl outer surface chucked in a three jaw chuck, on the lathe. After that I finished the inside by shaving the step edge into a smooth slight curve.

Forstner bits are awesome.

I always use wood spoons, and a wooden spatula for using non-stick pans, because plastic melts and metal fucks up the pan.

I use the newer, high-heat tools. I haven't had a wooden spoon since my mother used to use it as a disciplinary weapon.

If your plastic spoon or spatula melts while you're cooking YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG.

My mom doesn't. She broke all her wooden spoons beating on me with them when I was a kid. heh Then she wailed on me some more for "breaking her good spoons!" heh

Good times.

Yeah, whacking them with a wooden spoon is an old tradition. I had one I drilled a hole through the handle of, and tied a loop of leather thong through that. It hung from a cup hook screwed into the end of the kitchen counter at waist level. When SLH got stroppy, I'd tell him to "go get the spoon."

Just telling him that was usually enough to get his attention and make him straighten right up.

I don't think that would work anymore.

Oh yeah. I once used the plastic spoon from a salad set to stir my bolognese... lesson learned.

He's a big kid. Might have to move to "wooden shovel."
