What has been created in this shop of crazed ideas as the thunder roared and the lightening flashed throughout the wooded hills??.......oh…… is a SPOON OF CHAOS!!!!!

Well I went to work on this piece of cherry for another session of spoonage…lol.

It was good to keep my whitteling, carving and hatchet work in step so I followed the very same tool methods as my last blog/project featuring a spoon.

I enjoyed the heavy rains and thunder while sitting in my chair just outside of harms way in my shop working out this sculpture of something totally off the usual path.

All camp hatchet, mora knives, and hook knife for the bowl.

Hope you get a kick out of it….and maybe while in your shop… this creates some…..............CHAOS!!!!!, BWAAAAH HA HA HA HAAAAAWWWWWWW….LOL!!!!

Have fun and cherry shavings to all.

I love the name and all that it implies. I’d be starting a spoon right now, but I promised myself no more than 5 projects in progress at a time!

Is there any especially good or bad wood for spoons?

Thanks everyone for the interest.

Kookaburra, fruit woods are your best bet for spoons. Cherry, Apple, Pear….etc.

Hope this was of help, thanks again friends.

Well here I am eating a big bowl of chunky Moroccan chicken soup with a big hunk of bread and wishing I was using your spoon. Great job Joe!
