This is my first carved spoon. I’ve been really inspired by the work of David Fisher, and I hope to carve more spoons and bowls in the near future. The last picture is another wedge from the cherry log that I split my blank from. I used a froe and maul to split a section and then a carpenter’s axe to rough out the shape. From there I moved on to my drawknife and spokeshave. I used various gouges to carve the bowl of the spoon. I tried a scorp and curved knife, but found the gouges to be easier to control. I’m definitely going to make a shave horse in the near future. I’m also going to try some more curved pieces of wood to start with so I can incorporate some more natural curves. It’s about 13” long, and it’s finished with a mineral oil and beeswax.
