Sure…....Sure….... Just another wooden spoon, right? Wrong!
I am posting my latest spoon build for two separate reasons.
1) It has a built-in slot that allows it to hang on a pot so the spoon doesn’t mess up your counter
2) I came up with a REALLY easy way of carving out the spoon bowl – as long you own a CNC router. ;-)
I was sick of having to rest my spoon on the counter, or in a spoon rest and I recalled seeing an image of an old carved spoon with a slot cut into it to allow it to attach to a pot.
Had to give it a shot!
Also, I took a few minutes to program a cutting template for my CNC router of a spoon bowl shape.
Put the blank in my machine, let it go to work, then draw the spoon shape around the bowl and start cutting and shaping. Worked like a charm!!!
The spoon is made of Ash and is REALLY strong, so I’m not too worried over the thin piece above the slot.
BTW, it’s bean soup in the pot – haven’t yet added the tomatoes, but it smells really good! ;-)
