The scent of cherry filled my shop and although this was no longer green which made it tougher to carve (Always best to go with fresh cut green fruitwoods), I loved the piece and wanted to make a spoon from it.
This piece of cherry sat around my shop for awhile…..moved it to the floor….ahh hell…. put it over on the springpole lathe….ahh hell…. back to the bench…lol. Finally…I saw a spoon to make from it.
I totally went for something different, playing with ideas and wanting to give it it’s own look and style.
I began with the camp hatchet, then preceeded with the various knifes, spokeshave, and forgot in the pics…but a little copesawing to cut the curved areas!
This was a side project to free up my mind and keep cool in the heatwave….lol.
A very enjoyable time getting to do some country woodwork and find new avenues to express ideas.
