nice!

Out of curiosity, what are you using to do the carving?

I tried a spoon gouge but ended up using my Dremel with flex shaft for most.

A Dremel would work, just is small scale. For hollowing, that Arbortech Ball Gouge is a bit costy, but is a rock and roll animal.

That is a nice selection of pieces.

Hey those look really nice. What wood species are they, and what finishes are you using? Did you sand them before finishing them?

You did a great job on those spoons. I agree I would love to see how you make them. Thanks for sharing.

I use a foredom Texas power carver for these…

That dremel is fine but once you upgrade you will never understand why you were dremeling.

Btw elm and cherry have been the best woods I’ve seen for utensils. I’ve tried almost 100.

Also tung oil… PURE tung oil finish three weeks in between coats. I have some like this that have survived a dishwasher for 20 years

Have your say...
