My job means I stay away from home Monday to Friday most weeks and recently I’ve been looking for ways to do some woodworking in my hotel room. This is my first project and also the first spoon I’ve ever carved. I roughed out the blank at the weekend with my axe and brought a gouge and a knife with me to have a go at spoon carving. I just designed it as I went along really. I liked the look of it straight off the tools, but I decided to sand this one. I was going to carve a design into the head of the spoon (if that’s what the top part of the spoon is called), but I quite liked the rising grain pattern so I left it alone.
On the way back to the hotel tonight I bought some walnut oil from the supermarket and wiped on a liberal coat with some toilet paper (needs must LOL). The spoon is about 300mm long and made of Lindenwood.
Phone photos only I’m afraid.
