Carving a Welsh Love Spoon #3: The Heart-Shaped Bowl

09-04-2015 09:33 AM by Brit | 9 comments »

Now it is time to carve the bowl of the spoon. Since the top surface of the spoon bowl needs to be lowered somewhat and I will lose my drawing of the heart, I started by roughly shaping the perimeter of the bowl so I didn’t lose the shape. I also transferred my layout lines to the side of the spoon because I didn’t want to lose them either. I will need to remove wood from the top, bottom and sides of the twisted stem section also to gain better access when shaping the under...

Carving a Welsh Love Spoon #2: The Caged Ball

09-02-2015 10:00 AM by Brit | 16 comments »

In this episode, I show you how I tackled the caged ball section of the Welsh Love Spoon. I started by squaring the outside of the cage and transferring the aperture opening to the other three sides. I then marked the diameter of the ball on the other three sides, but whilst doing that I found myself wondering whether or not the ball I’d drawn was the right diameter. After all I just drew a ball freehand along with the rest of the spoon. Should it be a certain diameter and if so, how big? ...

Carving a Welsh Love Spoon #1: Designing the Spoon

08-30-2015 01:49 PM by Brit | 16 comments »

On my woodworking bucket list, I’ve always wanted to have a go at carving a ball in a cage and a chain. With this in mind, I decided to incorporate these elements into my next spoon project (This will be my 4th spoon). So I grabbed a suitable piece of Lindenwood and sketched out my design. I went through a number of iterations before ending up with this. However, while I was ripping down the two sides of the spoon with my saw, it occurred to me that a caged ball and a chain were ...

Carving a small spoon

04-16-2014 04:10 PM by filiplaw | 3 comments »

I had a small piece of pine laying around and a free afternoon so I decided to carve another spoon. I wanted it to be small (somewhere between a teaspoon and a tablespoon) and simple in shape. I traced around some plastic spoon I had in my kitchen and altered the handle shape a bit. With the outline ready I went to work. I made some stop-cuts with a saw and bashed out the waste with a 20mm chisel. I also did the same to the underside since the stock was way too thick for a spoon.I find ...

The old time woodshop journals #13: Country spoon carving

07-09-2012 11:43 PM by jjw5858 | 7 comments »

Well it sure has been a heat wave over here on our side of the farm…..man oh man the daily temps in the high 90’s with a good dose of humidity to boot. I sure hope all of you are taking your woodwork slow and carefully if you are working outdoors or like me in a non air conditioned shop with fans only. I took a bit of a break for a few days to keep things cool…....literally…lol. My Rustic Renaissance Trestle Table is still ongoing with the top being worked on ...

New Project, new wood species.

01-10-2012 06:01 PM by LelandStone | 0 comments »

Okay, so the wood isn’t really ‘new,’ I’ve just never had a chance to work it before! :P The local lumber warehouse carries all the usual suspects: Alder, Ash, Birch (one of my faves), Oak—White or Red, and Walnut. They’ve got a great selection of ‘exotics,’ too, but at north of $7 a board foot, a little out of my price range. However, they’ve also got a bee-yoo-tee-full selection of European Beech, for $2.96/bf! This stuff is G...

Spoonsfortwo (turning & carving)

10-01-2011 12:38 AM by mafe | 11 comments »

Spoonsfortwo Turning and carving. Spoons for the lovers, for the wild life, for the belt or perhaps just for fun. A hazle branch. A spin on the lathe to give it a torpedo shape. While spinning I cut a 2 mm spur. Sanding 80 – 240 grid. Smooth. Cut of the ends, and split it down center.To split it down center use a hand or band saw. Then carve out for the soup. Just about it. This is what we end up with!When we have added a O-ring. You get it? Tataaaaaa...
