These were hand carved from basswood using a knife and gouges. They are finished in a food safe mineral oil, beeswax and carnabua wax butcher block finish. These are headed to my college-age daughter for day to day use.
The intent of these spoons was to learn how to carve the bowls. They are prototypes. I will be branching out into more complex forms using some more interesting wood.
I have done very little carving and these are the first in the round items I have carved since I whittled as a teenager.
Also in the photo is my new hook bladed knife. This knife arrived today and was not used in the carving of these 3 spoons. The knife is from Lee Valley and I belive it is being discontinued. You might want to order one before they run out of them if your interested in a hook bladed knife.
