Wooden Spoon

01-27-2013 03:10 AM by Rustic | 8 comments »

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”

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...

Playing Around with Carving #9: Just Kicking Around today

08-14-2011 06:02 AM by WayneC | 18 comments »

I roughed out another spoon today. I was trying a different handle shape to get a feel for it. Playing with some curves. Also, I’m looking for good ways get a better finish on the spoon bowl. I tried sanding some. I need to get better at making smooth cuts to reduce the work required to finish the spoons. I am thinking of getting some curved knives. That or I need a wider/flatter bent neck gouge. I am thinking of a knife simlar to one of the curved ones from Pinewood For...

Playing Around with Carving #7: Putting my carving fixture to work

08-07-2011 07:09 PM by WayneC | 6 comments »

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...

SPOON CARVING #5: Back in the saddle again...

07-23-2011 04:36 PM by Spoontaneous | 22 comments »

After a good 5-6 weeks, I finally made it back to the shop for a couple of hours yesterday, the shop being the alleyway behind my friend’s garage. Pretty dang hot and humid.. and the mosquitoes and gnats didn’t seem to mind. I didn’t take along my sketchpad but I remembered this inch long drawing (circled) that I thought would be easy and fun to make. Looking through my wood box I found a piece of serviceberry wood that I thought might look alright. I don’t ...

Carved Three Carvings Saturday and Sunday

07-18-2011 05:17 PM by helluvawreck | 19 comments »

I’ve been trying to learn chip carving for about 3 months. I like to carve free form chip carvings. I’ve still not gotten to the point where I’m satisfied with my chip carvings but I can do it better than what I could three months ago. I also try to do relief carvings occasionally but I haven’t done very many. Anyways, for the first time in a good while I decided that I wanted to do a relief carving so I chose this simple flower since I’m a beginner. IR...

SPOON CARVING #2: Regarding wood slection

07-12-2011 05:35 PM by Spoontaneous | 6 comments »

I had posted the following in the first part of the ‘blog’ (comment section) and someone was kind enough to suggest that it might be easier to find posted as a new segment/addition. Now that I have been educated, I will post the upcoming tools discussion as Part 3 and the step-by-step as future segments. A little bit about wood selection: For NON-functional spoons the choice in wood is completely open, although there ARE considerations. If you plan to carve in great deta...

SPOON CARVING #1: Spoon Carving FREE_FOR_ALL (aka collaboration, forum and even class)

07-01-2011 07:03 PM by Spoontaneous | 81 comments »

A while back I was asked if I would be willing to destruct… uh, I mean, INSTRUCT a class on Spoon carving. Since I have been told on numerous occasions that I ‘have no class’, I am going to, instead, call this a spoon carving ‘collaboration’. A forum of sorts, where anyone that wishes to participate can ask and answer any question, offer or receive any advice and most of all, be a part of the creative process. Obviously, the goal will be to CARVE A WOODEN SPOON. Simple enough, right? ...
