  1. I was goofing around today with some scrap wood and decided to make an effort at turning a spoon. I had some ideas how I was going to do it. I decided that the crude spoon I made was not something I'd be proud of. It isn't glued or finished and it is as far as it is going to go. I've seen some guys on youtube make spoons with elaborate jigs that required a lot of time and set up. All I could think of was,"Wood spoons are cheap, so why make one" I now know what a challenge it is. After making this one, I have ideas on better methods, but this is most likely the only one I'll ever make. I enjoye
  2. So far mostly a scroll saw and a band saw for the general shape. I think I will try to get it much thinner than the first spoon which was mesquite.
  3. 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
  4. My dad recently removed some old built-in cabinets from their 1900 vintage old homeAnd salvaged the wood shelves and sides from them. This appears to be Pine based on the couple of knots I found, but, at over 100 years old, is definitely different from today’s Pine offering at the big box stores. The grain is tight and I love the color of the aged wood. I found that the age and dryness of this made it a bit brittle to carve but managed to make this. I just sketched it and chipped away. No pattern here to follow. I am carving for the first time in nearly 20 years so things
  5. I guess this is more of my shop hiding these little pieces that some how fall off another project. Here I was tooling along throwing saw dust all over and look up and realize the top part of that little heart on top of this spoon is missing... I did a complete cleaning of the entire shop and nothing to show for that effort....but I did find a few things off of other projects that have been missing over the years.. I have found in the past to forget looking for the pieces and go on and cut out another piece, glue it in and forget about the miss hap.. But for some strange
  6. 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
  7. If anyone is interested in spoon carving, the current online issue of Canadian Woodworking has almost the entire issue on ir. https://canadianwoodworking.advanced-pub.com/Vizion5/viewer.aspx?shareKey=LGMI7m&utm_source=Canadian+Woodworking&utm_campaign=8ebab7dd69-ShopNEWS_2020-07&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_490231050d-8ebab7dd69-78334825

    I just keep carving them, they are fun. Sitting in the patio with family around, and I get to woodwork. Carving small items by hand can be a personal and relaxing time, and you can talk to the people nearest you while the carving is quietly taking place. The spoon on the left is almost ready for finish.

    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.
  11. Dangit!! That's why we call it learning right! I'll hang this one up as a reminder.

    The knife is a hook knife, great for carving out scoops and the bowl of a spoon. I read much about the use of these knives, and how to carve the Swedish Slojd method, it takes some getting used too, but the methods are very efficient and accurate. This hook knife is made by Morakniv, a tradition in Sweden, and the cost of the knives are very affordable. Here is a link to a series of videos by Morakniv and legend Jogge Sundqvuist on use and maintenance. The whole series can be found here at Swedish Knife Grip Lessons with Jogge Sundqvuist

    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.

    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.

    The spoon is completely roughed out by my hatchet.

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

    With my hatchet I flattened the top surface of the spoon.
  21. 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.

    The beginnings, I am ready!
  23. From the album: Spoon Carving

    My spoon is roughed out as far as I can go, now I will wrap it in cloth and let it slowly dry for a couple weeks, then refine the lines and facets.
  24. From the album: Spoon Carving

    I am attempting another spoon carving, I trimmed a Chinaberry tree a couple weeks ago and the long straight branches are ideal for green woodworking. I took my hatchet and roughed the blank out, then started shaping.
