Default Wood Ladles and spoons

I am working on a wood ladle and I am wondering the best way to sand the inside of the ladle besides hand sanding it.

You have hit the jackpot--we have so many smart woodworkers here.
Thats an interesting question.
A smooth spoon is so much easier to clean and more sanitary.

use a piece of broken glass, maybe with a rounded edge. Be careful.

I am sure you know to work with the grain.

Interesting thought I just bought some sand paper the other day. So I am gonna take a whack at that. Also how would you use the glass to do that?

Pull it across in one direction, not back and forth. Look for a piece that suits the project, like curved a bit. Would love to see some of your work.

Amazon has this.

Would be faster and easier than hand sanding.

I would put it in my drill press.

So I started sanding it yesterday when I had a little down time. It is a real pain in the butt! I am almost done though thanks for all the suggestions!
