A pair of beech spoons
« on: February 27, 2012, 03:23:46 PM »
This is for a trade with  someone I am  basing these spoons on a silver spoon from the  utensil drawer LOL  I had  made the trade with  him a while ago  now gotta start working on getting some  blanks to carve up

Ok  bit of work done on it today got them separated now starting to  do a bit of rough cutting on the handle and outer bowl shape trying to make a duplicate set to match the silver spoon as close as I can

They look like they will make good soup spoons.

Yes I know not ideal and no it  will be sanded down a ton more before I hit with mineral oil but took a tiny bit of 3 n1 oil to bring out the grain my camera just don't do it any  justice but a teaser shot
