My suggestion is that if you indeed want to make some extra monies off of the scraps, you should look into segmented bowl turning
video's on youtube.Then after you get the general idea of how they are asembled, you can then go on ebay and sell the scraps as seg mented bowl pieces. In this way you can offer multiple species of woods in a package deal.
As far as making spoons etc, you have to be very careful of the variety of exotic woods , as they can contain oil's and nasty elements to them that is not desireable for food consumption. However if you want to make spoons for decoration, then yes you can. You will need a wood lathe in order to turn the round handle shape of the spoon leaving enough material at one end to form the spoon bowl by hand. Farily easy projects to do, but you must have the right equipment and a few months/years of experience in their use.
Most lathes are turning at a rate of 2000 to 2500 rpm's and can be dangerous to the operator.
Ask away if you have any other ?'s as this is my first love in life.
