I've never been able to call a spoon finished without sanding, especially the bowl of the spoon.It may be silly (no, it is silly) but not using sandpaper can be a source of pride for woodworkers of all stripes, spoon carvers included.
In my flat work, I don't let this trivial nuance get to me: I'm a sander.In my spoon carving, I desperately wanted to be free from the grasp of the grit.Pride was a contributing factor, but mostly my disdain for sanding spoons was rooted in the fact that there are few woodworking tasks more arduous than sanding a spoon bowl.
Thankfully, my eyes were opened last summer at Greenwood Fest in Plymouth, Mass...
