WOW this was a fun day!!!!!
I’ve always kind of been afraid of spoons. (I really don’t like to sand inside curves) but I finally jumped in and made one then another and another. Took me 4hrs from start to finish sooooooo kewl. I think I’m addicted.
First one I made is maple I put some notches in the handle for a better grip hee hee. I really need to practice on my profile of the inside curve thats for sure.
Next one is the funky spatula spoon made from cherry.
The final one is walnut and again I really got to come up with a better way to get the inside curve carved in there. Anybody has any tips I would love to hear them.
So I bought this carving tool for my 4” grinder many months ago and finally put it on. This is what I used for the rough carving (after i cut the blank out on the band say of course). Then I used my air grinder, dremol, stationary belt sander, rasp, and good old sand paper to finish it off. I put butcher block oil finish and have to head back to the shop here in a minute to put a second coat after I finish typing this.
I’ll get better pics after they are completely done I was just so excited how quickly I got them turned out I had to come and post to you guys and gals.
Anyway if anyone has any plans for a stationary belt sander that I can make to help shape that would be cool. I’m thinking something that would allow me to use a smaller strip of sanding belt with no backing like the one I already have has. I think maybe this will allow a bit more free flow sculpting.
Anyway let me know what you think.
