Spoonful of Love

“Spoonful of Love” was made for my girlfriend last year for Valentines Day. It was the first thing I ever carved. I wanted to make her something instead of buying it and it also gave me a little practice before I carved the side of Box of Chocolates. It was fitting that it was heart shaped for two reasons. First is obvious in that it was a Valentines Day present. The second is not so obvious anymore…since I was able to carve the stain out:-) While carving it I found out the hard way that without wearing a leather glove a quick slip of the hand tool with a course burr bit can remove quite a lot of skin and tissue! In a quick second I was literally putting my blood and sweat into the project! Ouch!

Well in the end she loved it so the pain was worth it…well…you know what I mean!

I used a block of Koa for the project and it is finished with a salad bowl finish. It is roughly 13” long.

Posting it so that people might get a quick idea of what to make for a loved one for Valentines Day.

I missed this one Jeff, but only by 117 days. Better late than never.
Anyway, this is definitely a great first piece, or second, or third, or… I love the finish on the koa and the flowing design is beautiful. Nicely done my friend!
