Wooden Spoons

The First Attempts

When I decided I wanted to take up carving again, this is what resulted. A tablespoon, teaspoon measurement from basswood. Not the most durable, but good for practice and fun for showing off :)

two more spoons, the top two from my little blocks of wood

Soup Spoons

Walnut Spoons

I just finished two walnut spoons that I have been working on for a while. The top one is made from the same shape spoon blank as the eating spoons. The other is a short handled mixing spoon.

Teeny Tiny Spoons

These are the two spoons I made before I bought nicer knives and stronger wood. They are really not useful in everyday use, but they were helpful to me in practicing making spoons

“Before” Black Walnut Mixing Spoon

I love the process of spoon making. Taking a rought piece of wood and turning it into something beautiful.

“After” Black Walnut Mixing Spoon

This it the beautiful that resulted.
