I'd like to make a spoon, but I don't know what woods are suitable.
I know that you can use apple, pear and beech, but I haven't seen any of those trees around. Well, I haven't seen any apple or pear around. I'm not sure what beech looks like.
So, what can I use?
Thanks for replying, Rob Mac. Isn't rimu quite resinous? I read that resinous woods can add flavour to food if used in utensils. Have you used it?
I don't suppose there are any really common trees that can be used? I'm terrible at tree I.D.
I carved a spoon out of feijoa . Worked out ok. I often use when eating a stew or curried goat. The goat is always harvested with my recurve bow
Thanks guys, I'll try the rimu and pohutukawa!
