Spoon carving 1st and 2nd


So last week i made my first attempt at carving a spoon! I tried the coal burning way the first time, It did not go well!




The next day Sunday I started the second one!
sorry for the gap in pictures the camera was down!

This was after I had started the bowl hollowing with the new crooked knife!

Those are the only 2 tools I used in making this! The knife is a custom from GB by a friend Sticks65 a link to his creations can be found in my blog roll!

Sanded and waiting to be sealed!

    Love the work you did on the spoon, Doc. I’d love to give it a try. What are some wood types I should look to use?

      Both of those where seasoned maple. I really liked working with it! Birch is the main staple for wood work on kuksa’s and spoons and the like!

      I have some spaltted river birch seasoning to make some more spoons out of! Usually your hard woods are best as far as I have found! Due to pines sap adding a funny flavor! If you dont have a spoon knife (crooked knife) has the best prices for the mora ones! He will hand pick one if you call him or shoot him an email! I have dealt with him really great guy!
