Default An interesting jig

I often wondered how to make wooden spoons.

Nice, NEVER thought of that, I made a spoon once for my mom, out of purple heart, I never finished it. She's gone now, and no spoon.

Harry, that is a great idea but how do you turn the handle?

Don in Murfreesboro,Tn.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

Clever. By angling the cutter you make the dishes out part ovoid instead of round.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

That is cheating. The only thing you need to make spoons is a swedish carving knife and a hook knife. You can also use a gouge which is nice for bowls. Spoon carving is an awesome break from precision woodworking. My wife and I like to do it around the campfire.

Spooning around a campfire? Sounds like a pretty good way to carve a perfect relationship.

I've just remembered that some years ago a member asked for help in making 15 dishes without a lathe so I posted these shots as a possibility.
