Here are another handful of spoons…yep, I’m addicted! :-)
photo 1 is a close up of the handle carved into photo 2…I wasn’t really trying for a heart-shaped opening.
photo 2 is the rest of an 11” long scoop made from QS black walnut…holds right at one cup…hours of sanding on this big momma…
photo 3 is a 9” long squiggly spoon carved from an Hawaiian fruit tree…rambutan…sweet little spoon…mundane photo.
photo 4 is another squiggly spoon…nearly a foot long with 5 micarta pins inlaid near the butt of the handle (spiraling around the handle; only 2 visible in photo). This one is made from afromosia teak…lots of olive hues in this board…
photo 5 is of 2 spoons I just completed from my ‘old templates’…a few friends convinced me to keep making this shape as well as the funky stuff. :-) top one is from bubinga, lower is from tigerwood…another fav!
finish is the usual oil/wax…

ideas and comments are welcomed…

beautiful work. can’t let my wife see these, she’s been wanting some wood bowls and utensils. don’t suppose something this pretty should be called a “utensil”.

Looking good! I really like the one in the 3rd photo and those two in the last photo. Nice curves and nice wood grain. Keep them coming.

I like photo 5 the best. Grain and tone of these woods is exceptional.

Great looking spoons, Terry! Your find sanding and finish is superior and the designs are great! They sort of remind me of the spoons/sporks kick I got on a while back. I’ve always admired the beautiful carved spoons so I decided to try some too. It was fun, interesting and the friends/relatives I gave them to seemed to like them as well.
