    Heres a large black walnut serving spoon. Its about 18" long with a unique shape to it. I did my best to follow the grain to give it a rustic feel. Coated in mineral oil. Turned out nice! More of my spoons here My shop
  2. Dieter's Spoon

    The first spoon I can't take the blame for. Back when I posted the Spine spoon, someone else suggested it looked like a dieter's spoon… so here is a Dieter's Spoon. Mahogany, rose thorns and a big thorn off of some tropical tree. Approximately 10 1/2" x 2" x 1". The Hula spoon was carved from...
  3. Wood spoon: The reason for the practice

    First off, I want to thank all of you for your kindness, inspiration and encouragement. Believe me I take a lot of pride hearing from woodworkers that come from all walks of the trade. Wether it be hand tools, machine work, or both, I am always very excited to share my part of the shop with such...

  5. Custom black walnut wooden spoon

    Working with a client in Hong Kong, after a few designs sent back and forth, this was the perfect spoon design for her food blog. For the wood burning, I used a torch and a nail. I think it turned out awesome. Turned out beautiful! Is a small one but has lots of character. I did a video...
  6. Short stack of spoons

    I usually like to gather up several spoons before making a post… but my wife and I will be traveling overseas (Philippines) for the next couple of weeks… so I thought I would go ahead and tie up the loose ends. The first spoon showing I call 'Blanco' for obvious reasons. A lady from Tennessee...
  7. Yo Yo Yippee Yi Yo

    I do my carving in an alley behind a friend's garage. People walk by and stop to talk sometimes, mostly the homeless and semi-homeless. One day a guy from an hour south was out walking while his wife was at the nearby doctor's office and he took an interest. He was wearing this old cowboy hat...
  8. The Great Race

    A certain number of years ago you were a participant in the most important race of your life. In fact, it was a race FOR life…. And there were millions of other participants with the same goal as you. Not only did you have to be fast…. your timing had to be impeccable! The odds against you...
  9. Another stuffed chili spoon

    Thought I'd try another chili spoon. I set aside some nice looking pieces of my firewood, a while back, just for pieces like this. Wood turned out to look really nice. That's maple. Cut out with a band saw, shaped rough with a roto-zip, shaped with files, then sand. Think I'll make more of...
  10. It's Aliiive! Not the snake... the website.

    yeah…. so, I FINALLY got a website up and running. Not totally complete, but a good enough portion as to give some folks a basic idea of what I'm into. If you happen to check it out, please let me know if you run into dead or erroneous links. The 'links' page and a couple of others…. I am just...
  11. Welsh Love Spoons

    A couple of Welsh love spoons made from left over building materials. The one on the left is Brazilian Cherry flooring and the right knotty Alder case molding. They are 1/2" thick. The larger one is 12" the shorter one 6". I "designed" these using 3D modeling software (Aspire) and then cut...
  12. Buy one spoon, get 150 for free.

    Well….. that was how I planned to 'sell' this one. With a built in USB memory stick I was going to load up digital copies of 150 of my spoons. That was the plan anyway. It did not quite work out like that due to some major ineptitude from the maker. Yeah… it kind of looks good from a distance...
  13. Crawled out of the woodwork.

    The first spoon I'm going to call Rhinobarkasaurus, 'cause that's what it looks like to me. Still working that same piece of black cherry burl. Approx. 8". My wife left one of my spoons on the hot stove and ruined it. 'Melt' is carved from horse chestnut, approx. 8". 'Bite' is a piece of...
  14. Chili spoon

    Been kind of uninspired lately. In my shop, but mostly reading, cleaning up, messing around. I was burning some scrap pieces to thin out the mess, when I almost threw this piece, I'd been saving for some time, in the fire. I got to thinking, if I was inspired, what would I do with it. It was...
  15. 'Wring' around the Collar

    'Wring' Around The Collar (those dirty wrings) is from a dead branch I cut off a Sea Grape growing in the alley way behind the garage I use. About 7 3/4" long and a very hard wood. Fowl play is suspected. Two-Gether is carved from two joined pieces of poplar burl. About 5" wide. The maple burl...
  16. Spunes

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall Humpty Dumpty had a great fall… followed by a brutal winter. 'Humpty' is carved from Dawn redwood with broken eggshell and stains. 'Day of the Dead' is from that Horse chestnut, ball bearings for eyeballs and a Sharpie pen. 'Ms Mac' is Macadamia nut wood. I almost...
  17. Spoon making in Copenhagen post

    Spoon making in Copenhagen working green wood Green woodworking means working in fresh wood, this makes cutting and carving a lot easier. Brought home wood from a walk in the forest, had no plan but were thinking spoons so I took one that were really crocked. Pictures: 1. The spoons. 2. Green...
  18. Vertebrate, Ribbonacci, Maponi...

    The Vertebrate looking spoon is carved from the same piece of wood as the Jellyfish was. I asked the guy and he says it is black locust burl. I always thought locust was hard, but this was a very easy carve and finished silky soft. 8" I think. Ribbonacci is carved from Lilac which also finished...
  19. Not another snake spoon!?

    'Slither' is carved from a piece of ebony wood and inlaid with silver. This is the third snake spoon thus far…. and truthfully, I had no immediate plans to make another snake spoon. It was actually my wife's fault. About 6:00 one morning we were having coffee and out of nowhere she says, "I...
  20. A few more spoons...

    I can't make it to the 'shop' (which is outside) this weekend due to the Isaac storm bringing in a lot of rain and wind… so I thought I'd go ahead and post what I have made up so far. The 'Worm' spoon is carved in wild apple…. and I'm guessing it is about 9" long. The spoon with the bark is...
