Showcase cover image for Wooden kitchen utensils

Project Information

I found this site through another member, so I thought I would register and share what I make. I will add more wooden utensils later. If anyone is interested in how to make wooden utensils or the tecniques I use, or anything that has to do with the spoon making proccess, I will be happy to share with them.

Here is my email address: [email protected] I do offer my utensils for sale.

Those are very nice. I was just looking today to see what I could find on how to make some of these and all I could find were instructions on how to turn them. I really like these much better.

Yes, Yes, Yes, please share all you know about making treenware. There's very little on the net so you kind of have to figure it out on your own.

Nice!
I have made some spoons but I would still be interested to see how others manage to make them. I'm certain I will learn something. I'm mainly using the 'how to carve an elephant' method ie: remove everything that doesn't look like an elephant.

I always wonder about the curved handles. Should you simply carve out of a thick piece of wood, or should you steam bend the curve into a thin piece of wood?

Never can have too many how-to's, love to see it. I've tried these a few times now, didn't end great. I don't turn, so I've had trouble getting the business end of the spoon looking right. I've toyed with the idea of a jig for a guided bowl bit. Not much of a carver.

Cool projects. That one looks like plumb wood. I happen to have a chunk of plumb, and have been thinking of some kitchen tools. Glad you showed up to inspire us.

Really nice work. I have a chunk of olive wood that I found left from some tree trimmers and have been saving to make some spoons etc like yours. I would also appreciate if you would post a blog on how you do it.

Let me just add my request that you blog about the process (I guess blog is now a verb) and to join others on the quality of your work.

John, this are really nice pieces that you have posted.

I wholeheartedly concur with Debbie's comment. Tutorials are one of the nice benefits to being on-board here. The vast majority of us love seeing a new technique demonstrated and documented. I have never tried making a utensil but would enjoy seeing how it is done.
