Hey gang, here are two more spoons that I had a chance to work on these past weeks. I am sure getting the reps in on doing these…lol.
Just for fun I timed my work from spliting a piece to getting a roughed shape prepared for carving and it is around 25 minutes without rushing things….lol. Much of the work is no longer requiring pencil layout since my instincts see the shape and I go from there.
This episode has more new wood to share with some nice fresh cut Holly from down in our woods! Of course the Cherry is always fun to carve and this was a bonus having a great crook to make for a nice curve.
Holly is a nice wood to work, it’s a heavy haul but stays fresh and makes for nice hatchet and knife work.
It is true it seems this spoon making can get addicting to say the least…lol.
It’s obvious I have more than a few of these Swedish styled pieces than I know what to do with, so I am thinking on selling a few and giving some others to friends and family.
Thanks again for looking in and sharing your inspiring talents!
Keep on with the grain and more soon, spoon ahead wood pirates!!!!
