Spoons of this week...

Posted on April 10, 2011 by Furls Business Academy | 1 Comment

I’ll be away next week, enjoying spring in West Florida, so it’s best that I go ahead and bombard you guys with the projects of this week now. I started four spoons (nearly at five a week) blanks last sunday, and worked them throughout the week. Here they are

They are all made of reclaimed siberian elm and range from 6 inches (bottom) to 10 inches. The middle two were gonna be really awesome, but I got a little carried away while carving the bowls and got little holes. Which stinks. But whatever, I appreciate the form of the bowl now; I’m approaching total spoon energy flow.

The elm makes great wood for spoon carving, especially after I’ve just stropped my slojd; some of the shavings look like viola f-curves. I can just about get the basic shape in 10-15 minutes going crazy with the slojd, by which time the knife blade is burning hot because of all the wood on metal friction.

The second spoon was meant to fit really ergonomically in a right hand, perfect for competitive fage eating. But, ALAS, I went too deep and got the same little chip as I got in nearly the exact same spot (on the opposite side) on the spoon above. Super unfortunate.

I’ll cover the other two spoons sometime this coming week and give you a preview of what’s to come!
