  1. I've been wanting to try my hand at greenwood carving, particularly spoon carving. I decided that, to give myself every chance to succeed, I would need a bench dedicated to carving. I checked youtube, carving forums, etc and decided that a log mule/carving bench would fit the bill. It just so happened that my mother, last week, had asked me to remove some downed trees from her yard. Enter this weekend's project. First, stripping the bark from an oak log....... Then, it's time to cut the legs to size......... And
  2. We arrived home from our daughter's basic training graduation Friday night (post for that coming soon), and after all the excitement I got a chance to wander out to our backyard and chop out a rough spoon blank with my hatchet from some Chinaberry I cut down a couple weeks ago. I am in the learning stages of woodcarving and I am focusing on green woodworking Slojd style. I love it. My work has a lot to be desired at this point, but I'm having fun. I took the spoon to near completion, now I'll wrap it in cloth to let it dry out slowly for about two weeks, then I'll refine the
  3. From the album: Spoon Carving

    A friend of mine at work gave me tree limbs that he cut from his Japanese Silk tree, and I found some nice wood in those limbs. Just finished this large cooking spoon this afternoon and put the first coat of "Tried and True" on it. My third attempt carving spoons from green wood. It's getting addictive.
  4. From the album: Spoon Carving

    After I roughed out my spoon with my hatchet, I clean up much of it with my Morakniv's, and now I am ready to scoop out the spoon portion with my Morakniv hook knife. This is it for now, it was getting cold outside, and my wife came out an chewed me out for being outside with a bad cold, but but but honey, nope, get yer butt inside! Ok. So I wrapped the spoon in cloth so to not lose moisture too fast, and set it on my work bench for tomorrow, I'll start scooping out the spoon bowl with the hook knife.
  5. From the album: Spoon Carving

    A limb from a Chinaberry tree, and some tools, a Robin Wood hatchet which I absolutely love. Several Morakniv's, an old froe and we are ready! The curved portion of this limb is perfect for large spoons.
  6. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The spoon is completely roughed out by my hatchet.
  7. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The bark comes off really easy when working Chinaberry green.
  8. From the album: Spoon Carving

    With my hatchet I flattened the top surface of the spoon.
  9. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The curved limb is perfect for a large spoon. I split the limb with my froe, and it split perfectly, I can make two large spoons.
  10. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The beginnings, I am ready!
  11. From the album: John Morris's Hand Tools

    A couple weeks ago we did a tool inventory at my day job and we got rid of a few things, or gave them away, I salvaged this beautiful Plumb right handed hatchet, just begging for a nice restoration. She's an old hatchet used by our surveyors over the last 40 years, still has some survey orange paint on the handle. The handle is not conducive for a carving hatchet, I may make one and fit it to the head. But I really see a lot of potential in this single bevel right handed hatchet, I love it.
  12. I love this book, I ordered it from Tools For Working Wood and it's also available on Amazon. The book is a hard cover and full of great illustrations and images. The author Jogge Sundqvist walks you through what is needed to carve bowls, wooden ware and many other useful items for the home and garden. The principal of Slojd is to create self sufficiency in work, from making your own tools, to cutting down a tree or parts of a tree, and processing the wood by hand to bring it to the point of working it into something useful. I have become as of late very interested in woo
  13. I love this book. I picked it up on Amazon awhile back and finally got a chance to read through it and view the different holding techniques for the method of Slojd carving. I have been interested now for sometime in carving by Slojd, I have delved into the world of Jogge Sundqvist who is the son of the author of this book, Wille Sundqvist. And now I have Wille Sundqvist seniors book in my hands and I can't wait to set knife to wood. This book is a paper back, and the publication of this specific version is 1990, and has been updated through 2013 I believe. Though this book is cons

    The spoon is roughed out, and I carved the shape with a couple sloyd style knives.

    Eucalpytus Split

    From the album: Spoon Carving

    I procured this little branch for a wood pile at work, it's green, and I split it using a forest axe and beat the axe head with another small log till it split. I really need to get a froe.
  16. From the album: Spoon Carving

    I roughed out the spoon blank with my Japanese Hatchet and thought I'd bring out my new hatchet by Robin Woods and give it a try to bring the blank to fine rough. I like the new hatchet, it performed well in curves.
  17. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The spoon needs to be dished out, I'll do that after it has dried overnight.

    Chopping Area

    From the album: Spoon Carving

    I didn't need much, just an old log for a workbench, a stool to sit on, and a few tools. I really like this spoon carving, I set the spoon in the shop overnight to dry a bit, then I'll be able to refine the entire spoon tomorrow after much of the moisture has evaporated, and I should have a fully functional cooking spoon.
  19. From the album: Spoon Carving

    The bottom of the spoon, it's a lot of work, but well worth it, I love the journey to get it this far.
  20. As I search through my last tool haul, I am finally getting to bottom of some boxes, and I found this gem. It's a Japanese hatchet, or machete, made by "Nata". The stamping on it translated is "Nata Single Edge". I love this tool, it's heavy, strong, and I could easily see walking through the forest and coming up on some small branches and logs, and splitting them with a maul, and this tool, green chair making? It could be in my future. Here is the Nata, the sheath is actually made of wood, covered in swede.
  21. That time of year again. Three towns and a quarter of another having sales! First town was the 1/4 town, since we were right in that town....meh, struck out. Boss found a few things, then a trip through the countryside.....again a strike out. Just missed a sander and belts.. Went on to the next town, as they had CHEAP Gas for the van! Three ring circus trying to get to an open pump, the pay before you pump, too. Tank's full, on to the sales! Found a small barn off the side of the road, an old Plumber was selling a few tools!!! Finally! Spent $2 ( he only want a dollar, g
  22. Well, while on a Road trip, saw a place selling firewood by the chunk...50 cents. Thought about it, turned around and went....shopping. Dropped five dimes into the cash box, and got back into the van with a chunk of.....Ash? Oak? Not too sure. Measured at 11/4 thick! 7" wide, by 12" long. Might get some use out of it? First up, a bit of hacking away with a hatchet But in order to use this thing, I needed to sharpen it up. The chunk under it is the live edge, aka bark. With bug tracks too. Got the four sides about flat, maybe, and made a mess on the floor, again..
