Ending my Spork kick!

My admiration for all the beautiful spoons by fellow LJ, particularly Jim Stephenson of NEOWA, was my inspiration to make some of them myself – just to have some fun and to see if I could do it also. All my sporks (spoon on one end and fork on the other – not my invention) were made from scraps: the 1st (posted last week) was a spalted maple left over from one of my canes. The rest were all pine from pallet scraps. Final sanding with Abranet 400 and rubbed with four coats of Danish Oil. Now that I’ve had a lot of fun free-handing these, I think I got sporks out of my system and ready to go on to something else.

Go with the flow! I love the lines and now I know what to do with my spoon cut-offs – spoon caddies!
Great stuff LittlePaw, don’t stop!

They all look good but I especially like the one with the twist.

Did you use a chisel to dig those holes?

No. I don’t have a scooping chisel or a scraper, so I use a grinder to the dept I want. Then start sanding like it was going out of style. I found it quite tedious to sand the bowl smooth, but I get ti done!
