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.


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?

Spoons for two.

Bon appetit.
Store the O-ring in a safe place as you eat…

Clip it to the belt on the move.

Here we are back to nature.

I guess it was not a carved spoon, not a turned spoon, but a spoon it is, and even two. so perhaps I have finally become a member of the spoon club.

Hope this blog can inspire others to make spoons for two, perhaps even bring your beloved for a soup in nature,

Great idea and nice carving! Love how it becomes a belt attachment as well. Very creative.

...and since you have two of them, you can even toss a salad.

...and if you put a small triangular piece of wood between the two spoons and then put the o-ring back on, you’d have a pair of tongs.

Mads, there’s clearly no end to your talents my friend.

They are really nice, Mads. You are always very creative and have something new to show.

Hi ho,

thank you all for the comments, I try to be creative, or more honestly I cant help it, it is like a little animal in me, wanting to ask questions. So I try to do it the way I should but the little animal says ‘but you could also do like this’...

I was also thinking to make a salad set, a clamp, a clothes pin and a clipboard, but… Laugh.
Now I have spoons.

The best of my thoughts,

Have your say...
