More on molds for making spoons
Some more information on making the spoons with a router:
I used vasoline as a separator on the wooden forms when casting the molds. It worked well.
When routing, watch the router bit cut the wood and you can really improve the smoothness of the spoon dish.
I sanded the spoon dish using a 3/8” bolt chucked in a corded drill with cloth wrapped around the head and fastened with rubber bands. Strips of sandpaper were then attached, also using rubber bands. I used 100, 180 and 220 sandpaper in this contraption, then handsanded with 320 and 400 grit. Result was extremely smooth “dish” in spoon.
