I started a wooden spoon as a practice carving project. It’s kind of like a very miniature mandolin back plate, neck and head stock.

My coping saw is right near the top of the list for my least favorite tool, but it got the job done with a little help from a keyhole saw to cut the outline from a cherry blank (left over from the knife handles). The design will be very simple for this first one with an eye for actually being usable. It’s only slightly bigger than a large table spoon.

Very cool, I look forward to seeing the turnout. The more you work with the coping saw as with anything , you will get more of a rythm with it. Also the tension settings can mean a lot when trying to get through a piece. If it starts to stick use some candle wax on the blade. Great start!
