  1. My first posting - Spoons made from my Fathers Day gift

    This is my first posting to LJ. I've been a lurker for about a year or so. I love looking at all of the projects that are posted. I'm envious of you! Alas…... I do not have the DNA that enables me to actually comprehend "woodworking", so I relegated to carving decoys and spoons. The first pics...
  2. Spoons

    Made the cedar spoon today, started the other two. I have been wanting to get back into carving so here we go. The other two are spalted maple
  3. More Spoons

    Hi everyone, time for another quickie project…the last few spoons I've completed this summer. I've seen this format before, so hope I'm not breaking the rules too badly by posting the large photos below with the text…lots easier for ME to read. Hopefully, you guys, too! LOL. The two spoons...
  4. Spoon Carved from Mesquite

    Nothing fancy, spoon made from a limb of mesquite I got from the landscapers. Carved with Hirsch gouge and V-tool. Dimensioned with a coping saw and Stanley spoke shave. Finished with walnut oil.
  5. Large Oak Spoon and Small Pine Spoon

    My first attempts at carving some spoons with a gouging tool. Fun times!
  6. Spoons for the new year!

    Hey gang, with the new year upon us I had some spoons awaiting finishing as well as a brand new piece made just yesterday on New Years. All of this was Sandy storm wood, much of it hauled from local curb sides and even my local park. Glad to see it be able to bring something good from a storm...
  7. Kuksa made of Cherry

    Hey gang, I hope you may have read through the blog this evening. Here is my first try at creating a Kuksa! Very challenging piece of treenware to take on. I learned a lot of do's and dont's for the next go around. I feel that creating more than just a few spoons at this point provided me with...
  8. Spoons and scoops

    These spoons are made of cherry and birch. The finish is Watco butcher block finish. The coffee scoops are made of butternut, walnut, ash, cherry, birch and sumac with the same finish.
  9. Sassafras Swedish Styled Spoon

    This was a spoon that begins my further journeys into learning about chip carving and eventually the Scandinavian art form of kolrosing. Kolrosing is a very old method of giving fine line surface decoration to wood. It started centuries ago with simply using the tip of ones' belt knife to make...
  10. Kitchen utensils

    After doing 7 sets of these for gifts I am finally able to post the picture of one set. I'm not use to doing more then one of something! LOL But they where "fun" and I thought they look pretty good for my first time! Ithink by using the hickory took me awhile to get the bumps out on the spoons...
  11. Muffin Masters

    I told my friend, Roger, I'd make a spoon out of box elder log he brought me, but it was not long enough for the usual muffin master spoon. So I turned a short one out of the BE and 2 regular ones out of Cherry and I'll give his wife one of each! The are finished with Danish oil, dried 3 days...
  12. Christmas gifts - That time of year.

    I'm trying to knock out a few gifts for Christmas before the weather gets too cold to be out in the shop. The spoons are stocking stuffers made from scraps of walnut, cherry and maple. I still have a good many of these to go before the holiday. They are surprisingly fun to make. The cutting...
  13. Smooth Sumac Spoon with Dish

    Howdy, my lumber jock friends! More green woodenware here to share with you. This project was all done in Smooth Sumac with a cameo by some additional new spoons in the mix! I did not have a lot of timber for a larger bowl, so I made do with what I had and went for it. This is only my second...
  14. First spoon of the new year!

    Hello friends, I surely hope you all had great holidays! There are so many new things I am currently learning regarding green woodwork with spoons, traditional woodworking crafts, etc. But…this is a hobby for me so I will take these projects on when time provides and continue to enjoy the...
  15. Cedar spatulas

    Someone gave me a few pieces of split cedar. He asked if I'd cut some slices out for his wife to put in a dresser drawer. I ended up with a few left over chunks and after seeing all the LJs making spoons lately, I decided to give it a try myself. This stuff is pretty soft and I thought it might...
  16. Spoons: Sumac and Sycamore

    Hey everyone I am still putting more of these out and have hopes of selling a few in the upcoming months! These pair here are Smooth Sumac (not the itchy variety..lol) and Sycamore. I am in the middle of a computer crash so my old Macintosh 2000 rig is up and slow as a whale..lol, so I may not...
  17. A couple of spoons

    'Iced coffee' is carved from a piece of Service berry that I found on ebay. Pretty hard wood but took a nice finish. Has some really interesting grain in the bowl. The cone is a sort of built-in stand. The 'Bark' spoon is just that… a solid piece of bark, from a mahogany tree (I think). This is...
  18. Spoon from the pines!

    From the wonderful forest of pine comes this new pine spoon! The grain is a show off for sure and as usual a wonderful wood to carve with. Let the spoon season for a decent amount of time in order to dull any back taste of the sap and you can't go wrong creating a spoon with this fine pine! A...
  19. Swedish spoons in various woods

    Hello gang, this is my final output for the last of a total of 5 blogs I have written on the subject of carving wooden spoons in a swedish style. I left most of these plain and less chip carved just wanting to enjoy the more natural look of the grain. If you are new to the series you may enjoy...
  20. Ambrosia tiger maple spoons

    While splitting firewood I noticed some of the maple had ambrosia streaks through it and decided the wood was better suited for spoons than the fire pit. I re-sawed some of the fire wood on the band saw and have used book matched pieces for this set of spoons. It was my happy surprise to see...
