A Couple of Spoons

Just playing around with making some spoons!

The lighter spoon is made from a limb of English walnut and the darker spoon is made from a limb of Black walnut.

I rough cut the shape on the bandsaw and used a crook knife to clear the bowls. The lighter one I used files and sandpaper to shape it and the darker one I used a knife.

I wasn’t really trying to do anything with these other than having fun. I know that they aren’t very exciting but I really did have fun making these! I applied mineral oil for a finish. Now we have a couple more spoons to use in the kitchen.

Thanks for looking!

Great spoons and I am sure you learned from doing them as well.

Very artistic and free form. I especially like the one made from English walnut. Thanks for posting.

A couple of spoons is something I’ve had on my “to make” list for a long while.
I’ll bet there is more work to them than they look.
That top one of yours has a unique look to it that I like but does it feel right in your hand…..................

Ha ha ha! It is a spoon for a lefty but not by original design. I was just going for something other than straight so I cut a curve. It wasn’t until it had been cut and I could hold it in my hand, my right hand, that I realized that the spoon would have “felt” more natural if it had curved the other way. SO, I determined that it would be a good left handed spoon and not so much for the right hand.
You guys are pretty sharp to have realized that by just looking at some images of the spoons!
