  1. Elm spoon

    Had a scrap of elm that came off the edge of a piece I'm making into a stool, and decided it was big enough for a teaspoon. Knocked it out in about an hour and a half. Coping saw, spokeshave, hook knife and slojd, then some sandpaper and food-safe linseed oil.
  2. Spalted elm spoons

    Two spoons from scraps from the large slab of spalted elm that's going to be my new workbench and shop stool. The smaller one was a scrap I normally would have tossed, but I decided to try making a narrow spoon from it. It's almost all heartwood. The larger spoon is almost all sapwood. Both...
  3. TWCA Cam Handle

    I finally got a Nic Westerman TWCA cam. I have tried several times to purchase one in the past, but as soon as the next batch appears on his web site, they're gone faster than a politician's promise on election day. I ended up back-ordering one and since I now had it in my hand, it was time to...
  4. Blade guards for hook knives

    I have a few hook knives (or spoon knives) I use pretty regularly, and I'm continually dinging up the blades because there isn't really a good sheath for them. But then I saw jeremymcon's hook knife case and said I can do that! Rather than a screw, I decided to make my hinges of wood. I cut a...

  6. Tiger Maple Spoon

    A maple came down this past winter across the path to our summer camp in Maine. I cut it up for firewood and started splitting it when I found it was Tiger Maple. I could not just burn it so I saved a few sections. This spoon is made from that tree. I roughed it out with an ax and shaped it...

  8. Pear Cereal Spoon

    Late winter is a great time to prune fruit trees here in the PNW. My husband and I bought a small farm with an orchard in January and the trees were really out of control. Thankfully, that meant for lots of great wood to practice spoon carving and plenty of lessons in pruning. The trees have...

  11. Hook Knife Build

    A large storm recently came through our area and blew down a lot of trees. Hmmm, free green wood for the taking. Good time to learn how to carve bowls. For that you need tools that I wasn't prepared to buy so I decided to make a few starting with this hook knife. I started with a used...

  18. Second spoon - cherry

    This is the second spoon I've carved from dry, well-cured cherry. Everyone keeps telling me I should be carving green wood or soaking the dry wood so it's wet because that's so much easier, but I'm having fun with these and learning a lot. I'm discovering that with dry wood, there's absolutely...
  19. Woodcarving
    Hi everyone, I got an amazon.ca gift card and was looking at the Morakniv hook knives. I've never used one before but would like one for carving spoons. Amazon carries the 162, 163, & 164. Anyone have any experience with these? Any suggestions for which one would be best for spoon carving? Also...
