I had some time to kill the other night so I carver a couple spoons. One is out of maple and the other was out of a Russian olive tree branch that came down in my dad’s yard.

so are your spoons hand carved or did you use specific tools i.e. router, sander, etc to make them?

They look very nice and I’m sure will be put to good use.

The spoons were hand carved. I used a small Lie-Nielson spoke shave to get the shape and then a 1” gouge for the dish. Then I just used sand paper to touch up a few areas.

Very nice. I love the wood. Are you going to be making a wooden vice, or shave horse for making more in the future?

I would love to make a shave horse in future, I just have a few other projects in line ahead of that. A bench with a wooden vice would be awesome as well but my shop space is very limited so perhaps when I get a bigger shop that will be an option.
