These are some spoons that I recently carved. Most of them are carved out of alder, one out of birch. They are finished with linseedoil org tungoil. These ones ar for eating and carved in Swedish style with a curved handle so they are very comfortable to eat. The bowl is carved 1 mm thin so it has a good “mouthfeel”, the bowls are so thin that the light shines trough them.
I first hew them out of wood with an axe and then I smooth them out with a knife and a crook-knife (also called spoon knife). I finish them with scraping steel and sometimes sandingpaper. Then drying, oiling, more drying… and they are ready to use….
This is a picture of a small eatingspoon with my carving knife.
This is a spatula, coffeescoop and a stirringspoon. The coffeescoop is made out of hazelnut, sourced in my own backyard.
