« Part 6: Finished my carving fixture Part 7 of Playing Around with Carving series Part 8: Mads Inspired Spoon Horse »

I’m participating in Spoontaneous’s Spoon Carving class and spent some time roughing out a spoon this morning. I stole a hold down from my woodworking bench to use in the fixture.

Roughing out the bowl

Roughing out the outside

All and all, I am very pleased with the fixture. I am thinking of making a shaving jig for it. I have some ideas in my head. Otherwise I will have to sneak into Denmark and steal the shave horse Mads is working on once he has it finished.

Hey Wayne. Looks like your picking up on the carving pretty quick. I spent the afternoon trying to get caught up on tool restoration. When you finish two and but 4, its hard to catch up. It looks like you’ve got a few more spoons ready top go. Enjoy!

Dear Wayne,

That looks really nice, both the spoon and the setup.
I am sure my shaving horse will make you smile, some details that you will love, perhaps you will make one…
I think of you when I sit and smoke on it.
Just reached the step of making fire like the Vikings used to with a flint, tinder and firesteel, so a spoon must be a next hit on my list.

Best thoughts my friend,
Mads

Mads, I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with. I have lots of ideas bouning around in my head at the moment. I’ve been working on tuning up a spoke shave this morning to keep in the right frame of mind.

A well tuned spokeshave is one of my favorite tools.
