Spoon making in Copenhagen
working green wood

Green woodworking means working in fresh wood, this makes cutting and carving a lot easier.
Brought home wood from a walk in the forest, had no plan but were thinking spoons so I took one that were really crocked.


Pictures:
1. The spoons.
2. Green wood from the forest.
3. Hollowing with a spoon gouge.
4. A bunch of spoons.
5. Before and after.
6. Scraping.

You can read more in the blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/79386 to see how it was made.

Hope it can inspire.

Best thoughts,

MaFe

Beatiful work mads. Here had much hardwood, so in green wood is very hard too. Not easy to work. Like your production.

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s a great video by Roy Underhill on working with green wood and some shop-made chopping/carving tools …

Hi there,
GerardoArg1, then you just need to work harder. ;-)
dougsshop, I have several, you can buy them at several online dealers, one of mine are from the Danish Sagnlandet Lejre Viking museum.
johnhutchinson, what a wonderful video thank you.
snowdog, even though I am impatient I have to say it really brings satisfaction and joy.
Jim, there is really something special to that I agree – from tree to use.
majuvla, brings peace to mind.
Thank you for your comments.
Best thoughts,
Mads

Beautiful spoons and a great way to use otherwise small branches.
