  1. Carved spoon from Elm with torched bowl.

    Heres a spoon I carved from Elm. Im just using a small gouge, drawknife and utility blade. I wanted to experiment with torching the grain in the bowl! It turned out cool. One interesting thing Ive been experimenting with is boiling the wood prior to finishing. Aparently "tannins" come out of...
  2. Black walnut serving spoon

    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
  3. 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...
  4. Having a "ball"

    This project became a little more tedious than I realized at the start. One wrong cut and the whole idea would have to be changed. "Round" is not so easy sometimes!
  5. My first wooden spoon - with video

    I have always wanted to make a wooden spoon, and when I saw this project by KnotCurser I quickly asked him for his guidance. He gave me an amazing description on how to make one and soon after the sawdust started flying in my shop. I was so impressed with this, that I even made a video. Hope you...
  6. 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...
  7. Chip carved hard maple spoons

    So this is my recent set of spoons. Crafted by splitting blanks with a froe and mallet, shaped with an axe, and detailed with a carving knife. Many pro spoon carvers (Im still amature.. ) do NOT sand their spoons! So as you know wetting wood causes the grain to raise, but slices with a sharp...
  8. A few spoons

    Maple, Cherry, Walnut. Handmade, finished with mineral oil and made to use. Thanks for looking.
  9. 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...
  10. Ironwood carved spoon

    This is a project Ive been excited to take on for a while. The main mission has been to find some Ironwood! Finally! I have enough to make about 5 more spoons. Carving green, it was actually ok to work with. I wouldn't say it was a whole lot more difficult to carve than green hard maple...
  11. Twisting cherry spoon

    Hey friends, more on this in my new blog! http://lumberjocks.com/jjw5858/blog/31335 Thanks for taking a look. Cheers, Joe
  12. 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...
  13. Some Wooden Utensiles

    Here are some hand carved utensils I've made recently. The first set are made of walnut. Spoon, spatula, and salad serving set. The next three are cherry, 2 spoons and one spatula. Thanks for looking! Mauricio
  14. 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...
  15. Live edge cherry spatula

    So heres a cool little creation.. I made a cherry spatula, split from a log using a froe, shaped with an axe, then a drawknife. But I left a bit of the live edge on. Finished with a butchers block wax. What do you think?
  16. 'Found' Spoons

    While visiting friends up in TN, they had some errands to run and were kind enough to drop me and my pruning saw off at the woods. While there I found a couple of spoons and hauled them back with a few twisties for walking sticks. The first one I found in the weathered root of an upturned tree...
  17. Sumac carved spoons

    This is the same piece of sumac carved in opposite ways. Sumac is an interesting wood to carve! Very soft, but once its all finished it seems to hold its own. Ive only carved sumac once its been seasoned, but I would love to carve it green. Ive got a ton of pictures on my facebook, feel free...
  18. Simple but as useful as it gets

    This is the first spoon that I have attempted. It turned out to be really easy to make. I even made a little blog post on the steps I took to get there. CHECK IT OUT if you like @http://zlsboardworks.blogspot.com/. I like how the spoon came out overall and cant wait to use it. Let me know what...
  19. Spalted Pecan Spoon Rack

    Here is a spoon rack I just finished for our ever growing spoon collection. It's made from Spalted Pecan from our ranch, with white oak pegs. Everything was done by hand. The white oak pegs are secured to the Pecan base using tapered mortise and tenon joinery. I used the Veritas tapered tenon...
  20. 'Bongo'

    This was another good idea gone bad. My friend (who's garage I use) went to the Allman Bros. concert up in Northern Florida. On the way back from the weekend, he stopped at a Cracker Barrel restaurant and saw some cedar logs in the fireplace. He snagged the best looking piece and asked the...
