Hello friends!

I have been spoon making ahoy as of late..lol.

This new pair were carved using Holly for our timber!

My father during a hike fetched some decent branches, brought it back to the shop and I made these two about ….uhh…wow…3 weeks ago now…lol. I almost forgot to tend to them.

So I sanded and oiled them. Then did a photo shoot testing out my new Canon Power Shot ELPH 110HS.
Nice little camera, good price and pretty easy to use.

I hope this might give some of you galoots the temptation to get out in the yard (Weather providing) and have a go at carving your own spoons!

Thanks gang for stopping and having a look.
I also thank you for visiting the website and liking our facebook page.

Have a great woodworking weekend!

Joe

Great spoons as always. You really have these down.

I really need to buy a regular camera.

You’re a busy man Joe. The bit of carving on the handles is excellent. Best of luck with all you do.

Great looking spoons! The bigger one is just the right size for me, looks comfortable to hold as well. Like the carving touches too.
