Yellow Heart Scroll Spoon

This spoon is carved from Yellow heart, very hard but also loads of fun to challenge myself to carve the Scroll spoon again but smaller and in a wood I had yet to try carving. The small scrolls were a booger to carve to say the least.
It is finished in tung oil hence the dull finish, it will be buffed to a smoother finish in the end.
The Yellow spoon is 9” and the Cedar spoon is 11”.
Thanks for viewing.

Wow, please tell us how you did these. Is every curve hand done, all one piece wood?

I can answer that for you Phil. He cheats! I don’t know how he cheats, I just know he does. Sheesh! I’d like to look over his shoulder. Anyways, Jim. Never heard of that wood but the spoon turned out looking really great…. almost like a ‘fractal’ effect. You’ve got that precision carving down pat.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

You gotta love it when they think you cheat….J/K
Yes Phil- this is one piece, but I will say before it was over with it almost became a multipal piece.

Terry- you my good man may watch me cheat any time :-)

very stylish and classy looking jim. It’s ok to cheat. You don’t have to tell us but I’m guessing you roughed them in with a scroll saw, formed and rounded them off with little grinders in a dremmel and finally whittled and sanded to finish them off. I may be wrong but very nice nonetheless.

Jim- This spoon was first cut out on a scroll saw then carved using gouges and knives. The final sanding is completed using the Shofu rotary dental tool.
Being extra careful and constantly aware of grain direction is key when creating small detail. Im no expert but it is what I have found to be true when you challenge yourself in this medium.
