made in Scotland by a happy monkey
On my visit in Scotland, one of the days friends of Jamie came by the house.
So it was time for some quality time.
Around the table in the living room.
Plenty of talks, good mood and
Ohh yes and tea, since we are in UK, the Dane here had to replace it with coffee (sorry).
1. Spoon on bones, rough cut (one of Jamies old friends).
2. My first ever hand carved spoon.
3. Tried to play with textures and waves.
4. The shape give a good rest in the hand.
5. As you see.
6. Carving is more than carving.
I think it is clear to see we had a good day.
Here Jamie, destructing some wood…
Even Jamies really old friend was smiling, though he took a rest in the back ground
Arthur was busy, but did manage to sneak in with a little hand carved letter opener.
Wonderful Ryan and the happy monkey smoking his pipe, while we spend a good day together.
Ryan is a little sun, in his company one becomes happy.
This also happened to me, so I was having a blast that day, learning to carve fresh wood.
He is also a excellent carver, really patient with the tools, gentle and careful.
Even when he cut his hand a wee bit, he was calm and ready to carve some more.
This is Ryans spoon.
Think it really deserves a spot here on LJ.
Wonder if he is looking at woman once in a while…
Are you Ryan?
It was really a fine learning experience for me, to become friend with the tools and keep calm.
Hopefully the others did not think I was crazy with my focus on sharpening on honing, at least I was doing their tools also, yes I have a thing with sharp tools…
Jamie you are right I did a spoon before, but not really a hand carved one: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/54053
This is another project from my tour to Scotland visiting my friend Jamie.
This post is dedicated to our LJ friend JJW since you were in my thoughts that wonderful day, guess why Mr. Spoon.
Hope this post can bring some inspiration; this is a great way to spend time together.
