Along the same line as my last spoon I made another one to give to a friend that we’ll be seeing in a few days – obviously a musician. We used to get together and play every Thursday night and I’m looking forward to another night of music when we get together. Made from another birch chunk of wood, jatoba inlays. Finished with olive oil.

it must be a bean spoon.

you did a great job on the spoon itself and on the musical notes!! A treasure, for sure.

Do you use a spokeshave to smooth these out? I like them for straightening out my lines in the handles…

thanks for the comments.

StevenAntonucci – a spokeshave would work great, although I just use knives on my spoons.

This one threw me a bit of a ‘curve’ – I tried working with the grain, then ran into some dry rot, and ended up with a unique shape. As always, the wood gets the final say and you never know what you get when you pick your wood off the firewood pile….

Another great “sculpture” Clarence. Your friends are going to love this I am sure.

Your work has inspired me to finish my spoons. I have a lot of cut-off wood from my projects that I put away for future use. A lot of the pieces have been cut in the shape of a spoon. All I need now is to complete the projects.
I’ve done a few in the past and I sell them or give them away in groups of three – then inscribe the spoons – 3 BEARS! Not too many people know that story today. You do nice work!
