My beginnings and obsessions. I got bored one day and just started to make a single spoon for my wife and ended up doing more and more kitchen utensils, I get better with every piece and some are more rustic than others. I appreciate any and all comments. I have many more but do not know how to display them all in my gallery any help there would be appreciated.

The first is Purpleheart, newbie here did not realize how hard it was, the second are Cherry and the last are my newest ones of Black Walnut and Cherry. I have others where i used Zebrawood, Sapele, Maple, Beech, Oak and even some Poplar that was unique in the coloring. My wife is fascinated by them and threw all her other ones away.

Beautiful utensils! The same bug has bitten me. Didn’t have too much trouble with the spatulas but I can’t figure out how to carve out the bowl of the spoon. Mind sharing your secret??

Looks good! Now you just need a fork.

The bowls are carved with a Dremel and cutter can’t remember the number but it is egg shaped. I use a gooseneck scraper to smooth them and sandpaper and sanding sponges. The purpleheart took the longest to do.

Great work. Yeah, Gary’s right, where’s the fork? They look simple, but having tried them, I learned otherwise. My first one’s shaft broke within a couple days while stirring mashed potatoes. Oops. Well done again.

Great projects! I would never have thought of the Dremel. Now I have to try it.

Very nice, Jerry.

How did you finish them?

I just recently started spoon carving. I have two started, but not finished yet.

These are both practical and gorgeous utensils. I can well understand why your wife replaced her original set. These are unique and vastly superior to anything available off the shelf.

Well done. And thanks for the post. By the way I enjoyed seeing your other carvings as well.
