Left over wood from my wood carving projects have turned into some nice spoons. I use no pattern but carve where the wood takes me. That is a lot of fun!!!
The light coloured wood with red streaks are some remnants from my Rocky mountain juniper. The burgundy stripped are Caragana branches. The lighter browns could be anything from mahogany, lilac, etc. These pieces of wood came from pallet skids, identity of wood unknown. Alas the dark squiggly spoon is some tropical hardwood that was tough to carve. It could be desert ironwood, I’m not sure. It turned out nice but I burned out a couple of carving burrs!
All were finished with a spray-on lacquer.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American viewers!

Man… did some fine work there. The wood just takes ya where IT wants to go doesnt it? Very nice work and will make some beautiful keepsakes for whomever gets them. That black one is definitely unusual and quite eye-catching.

That’s alot of spooning going on up there in the cold country.
I made one spoon out of hickory just to see if I could. I showed it to the wifemate and it has been her chili cookin’ spoon ever since.

Thanks for the good wishes … But you have Boxing Day …

Roman…. with the holidays (back then) I completely missed these. Very cools spoons and lots of them. I know how enjoyable it is to just go with the flow in making these. Very nice work!!!
