OK, it’s not completed. But, it will be in a few hours. I still need to cut it off, and finish the end.
It’s not just another pretty face, this is fully functional. It is contoured to go around my leg . It performs very well.
Right now, I’m having fun making hexagonal handles. I know, I need to expand my horizons.
This is a multi axis turning, then bandsaw the spoon end to rough shape. After that it was a 1/4” gouge to shape the bowl, and a 1/2” chisel to get it to final shape. I followed that up with files and sandpaper.
This could have been a spoon, or other kitchen implement, or a backscratcher.The timing is right for a shoe horn.
I started with a blank of walnut, 28” long x 2” square. Olympic antique oil finish.
-- on Wednesday's I go shopping, and have buttered scones for tea...
