best spoon wood per skeeter

Michael “Skeeter” Pilarski, permaculture and wildcrafting instructor, talks a bit about what makes the best wood for carving a wooden spoon.

This was filmed at sahale. As part of the washington state permaculture convergence.

Skeeter mentions why eucaluptus would make for a terrible wooden spoon (taste). Skeeter talks about serviceberry (I have a hand carved serviceberry spoon).

Skeeter talks a litle about cottonwood and yew.

My later research shows that maple might be the best, followed closely by apple.
