Carved from Claro walnut.
The waste was turned into a gift box with wooden hinges.
Spoon is 11” and finished in poly.
Thanks for the peek.
:-) God Bless

What a great carving! I have never seen or would have thought of adding a box to match. Great use of falloff material!

A really great presentation case for a really great spoon. I’m still scratching my head trying to figure out how you do those itty bitty scrolls so cleanly. Files??

I clamp the spoon in a vise and cut sand paper in thin strips with packing tape on the back for strength.
Its fast and easy.

Jim ~ Do you use a diamond bit to get the shape before the sanding process? I’ve actually rigged up some miniature sanding mops that work well… but getting the shape close enough to sand is where I struggle.

The shape comes from good ole fashion knife and gouge work. Then I sand starting with 220 grit and stop with 400 grit.

A gorgeous spoon deserves an equally interesting box. Beautiful walnut, intricate design and awesome finish. Excellent work!
