The First AttemptsWhen 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
Walnut SpoonsI 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 SpoonsThese 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 SpoonI love the process of spoon making. Taking a rought piece of wood and turning it into something beautiful.
“After” Black Walnut Mixing SpoonThis it the beautiful that resulted.
