I promised spoontastic (spontanious) I would show my spoons. Took a bit because I waited on a gradient background paper to take pictures so here it is:
My first efforts before I knew how to do shape of handle and bowl. Used a flat blank instead of curved, etc
Progress means learning to me. I learned to cut blanks on band saw to give handle shape and bowl tilt the way I want.
The top was a spoon before split or grain got it. It is now a tool to chop hamburger when browning. Quit effective.
Improved on bowl shape and edge.
Notice the grain and heartwood combos. I like playing with color.
Learned oak is not good for spoons. Note tip of bowl.
These two cherry spoons were playing around with ideas. The bottom one has a pot sitter on it. Works nice.
These are oven shelf pullers.
Spoon I use everyday cooking. Has nice handle, large bowl, tilt is good to taste with or serve.
Tools I use for bowls
Lower right is Kutsall course burr, Upper is Fine burr, Lower left is large sanding pad for drill press, and upper left is small sanding disk in drill press, Both disks are velcro so I can go easy from 40 to 320 grit.
Please enjoy and comment. Thanks
