Default Spoon carving

We are in the south for the winter so this is when I do my carving. I cut the spoons out with my scroll saw before we left home. Cut out of 4/4 basswood. They are about 10" long. This is my first attempt at spoon carving. I will definitely invest in a scorp or a spoon gouge. Kind of limited with the regular gouges I have.

I added some woodburning details so they weren't plain looking. Finished with about five coats of spray lacquer so no good for food use.

Pattern came from Woodcarving Illustrated Magazine Fall 2012 issue.

Isn't it great to be able to take some woodworking with you?

Great result, Ted.

That is the great thing about carving. A piece of wood and a sharp knife and you are set. It's not too hard either to find a small group of carvers. I found a small group here that has now grown to 35 people and more expected after the holidays.

Excellent spoons! They're so delicate and intricate, a collectible.

I gave these to our daughters for Christmas presents and they thought the spoons were 'cool'. Thanks

Love them. Gorgeous spoons, the wood burning added a great accent and a nice touch. Superb work!

Old post or not, I have to chuckle. To me, and even without the burning details, these seem far from "plain."

Nice work.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.
