I saw all the nice spoons that everyone was making and decided to try my hand at it. And I have discovered that spoon making just isn’t my cup of tea.

First one never goes as well. Make a few more, it gets better. Looks fine on this one.

As I always say…....If you don’t like doing it….Quit. I stand by your decision. Besides, you can by one at Walmart for 4 bucks.

Thanks for the words of encouragement monte but I just didn’t enjoy making this so I think I’ll just stick to doing the projects I like to do. Live and learn.

pratt. What do you prefer and what intrigues you about them. I like spoons some and got good at it in my process of learning. They are easy? Just curious.

Hey Phil, I guess they could be easy but I don’t have any carving tools. I did the bowl on this spoon with a drill bit in my drill press and it was a lot of work. I enjoy doing cutting boards and have started other small projects.this is a new hobby for me.

Look up a guy named Robin Wood, spoon fest , and sloyd. Spoon making is fun with green wood and all you need is a axe and a knife that you can make. I even saw a man smoothing spoons with broken glass at a fair once. But with that said its not for everybody . I never liked any spoon made before , 6-7 years later after picking it up and trying here and there I can do ok .

Well prattman, at least now when you find your cup of tea you’ll have something to stir it with! ;-)

spoon bowls are easy Pratt, with a drill press and a 1” kutzall ball. Just hold spoon blank against drill press mounted burr. When I discovered this material remover, I bought 2 burrs. A Fine and course 1” 1/4 shaft. Spoons got very easy. Any Shape of spoon was possible. Made it fun.
Check out my site on other techniques on spoons and boards.
