Spoon making in Copenhagen - working green wood

02-24-2016 08:24 PM by mafe | 14 comments »

Spoon making in Copenhagenworking green wood Green woodworking means working in fresh wood.This makes cutting and carving a lot easier, but also you need to control the drying so it will not crack and shaping with sandpaper also have to wait until dry or the sand paper will clog up, but you can work with all kinds of cutting tools. Brought home these two from a walk in the woods.Had no plan but were thinking spoons so I took one that were really crocked.(They had trimmed some trees so t...

Carving a Welsh Love Spoon #4: Carving the Chain Section

09-10-2015 09:45 PM by Brit | 27 comments »

I was going to do the padlock next after roughing out the chain, but once I started on the chain I was enjoying myself so much that I just kept right on going. If you remember, this is how the spoon looked at the end of the last session. Work on the chain section began by paring down each of the four surfaces to the finished width of the links. Then I drew the edges of the links on each of the four faces. Next I removed the four corners leaving me with a ā€˜+ā€™ cross-section and dr...

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 | 18 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 Iā€™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 | 17 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 ...

Made this today. All I need to do is a little sanding and a finish on it. I used a piece of oak to make this one. This my real true attempt at a “spoon”
