poplar spoons
« on: February 19, 2012, 10:11:32 PM »
So here are the first two spoons I have ever made.
The first one I burned out the bowl and the second one was done with a hook knife.

 
 
 
 
 

Sorry that those aren't the greatest of pics or spoons, new to this bushcraft stuff.
And hopefully I posted those pictures right.

Nice work!

I like the traditional burned bowls and spoons, although I've never had the patience to complete one myself  :-[

I'm the same way. They look awesome, but I haven't had the time. Maybe next time I go on vacation or camp where the weather is nice, I'll get out and try some carving. When I'm home I'm always too busy.

Those look great!

The first one I made, one of my boys walked by and asked if I was making a spatula....that one became firewood!

No kidding, the exact same thing happened to me. Same comment by my son, and same final resting spot for my spoon.

And nice work treez, way better than I did on my attempts.
