Over the winter I have collected a few “small wood residues” in acquaintances and relatives. Unfortunately, I then missing for various reasons, the time to process the same woods. This is what I made up the last few weeks and in the evening try my skills at the spoon to improve carving. Regardless where I carve whether kitchen, living room or on the balcony in the evening sunshine, it was times better and sometimes worse.
My greater sense of achievement were those little baby spoon.
Strongly dependent were the results of how wet or how dry was being machined piece of wood. I have several times sounded my ears, as I thought of a set of Werner: “If the wood is dry, bleed a pretty fingers.” Please do not take all literally. But my fingers and hands have had to put up with a lot.
Over time, I then also learned somewhat effective to use my small ax. Millimeter precision I can not edit the wood, but over time we went better.
The small spoon of cherry, elderberry and ivy were eventually completed. Oiled ground with linseed oil and (hmm) – I get the surfaces unfortunately not so good out – I have given away the best four copies at two future moms from my work and my sister for her little daughter.
At least at first glance, all three were happy about the spoon. Will use the spoon but probably only my sister for the little one.
