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? ...

Spoon making 101

09-07-2010 11:15 PM by Andy | 22 comments »

The top and bottom spoons are Myrtlewood from Oregon, and the center one is Mahogany. Each took about 1.5 hours.The handle of the top spoon is a twist, but didnt photograph very well.I noticed the recent contest posted by Osageman and was impressed with both his skill and his big heart.Be sure and take a look at his page and make a guess on that wood.I couldnt identify that wood, but it got my attention.It got me interested in making a few spoons this last weekend and I wanted to share my...

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 ...

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, SCOOP, COFFEE or otherwise CLUB/Challenge

11-11-2010 03:46 PM by rivergirl | 50 comments »

HEAR YE, HEAR YE!! Yes, Virginia we now have definitive proof that cavemen did enjoy scooping coffee! In fact cromagnun man (and woman) were the precursor to modern day Starbucks. In response to my recent posting of a neanderthal period coffee scoop, that was presented alongside a lovely model crafted by my L/J friend Jerry W, it was suggested that we begin an archelogical study, a challenge or showcase if you will of scoops and spoons. Because it was my shamelessly (or was it shamefacedl...

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...

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 ...

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 ‘+’ cross-section and dr...

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...

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 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? ...
