I took some apple wood from the fire wood pile, and using a hatchet, hook knife, straight blade, and a plane, came up with these two. Sand up to 320 grit. Finished with flax oil so they’re food safe.

Nice way to repurpose a branch. I really want to try spoon carving. I have a book on the topic and knives I just need to jump in and try it.

Knew it was apple wood as soon as I saw the thumbnail! Apple wood is my favorite wood for spoons. Very fine grain and takes a really smooth finish. Nice work!

Jeremymcon, apple is my favorite so far too. It looks great once you get the finish oil on it.

Handmadewithashley, I recommend watching Peter Follansbee when he was on Roy Underhill’s show on PBS. That’s what got me started on spoons and bowls and they’re fun little time-wasters!
