Thread: Spoon carving

  1. #1

    Spoon carving

    So, the other day I watched a video by BushcraftBartons on YouTube, the subject being spoon carving and instantly I felt compelled to attempt it.

    My first attempt was using a downed Silver Birch that I found whilst out on a walk.

    Then I moved onto another type of wood. Bearing in mind, this is only the second spoon I have carved.. A little unsure what type of wood it is so if anyone has any ideas, they would help as I really liked carving with it and the end product is gorgeous.

    I'm still waiting for my spoon knife to arrive. There has been a delay due to a lorry fire on a major motorway. It should be here Tuesday/Wednesday. Gotta love Bank Holidays!

    I will put some more pictures on when they are complete, just thought I'd let you all in on the adventure!

    Lovely work, was that really your first go? Abit of linseed oil would bring the grain up (if is not toxic?)

    I can completely understand why, Rossbird. It's therapeutic almost!

    Yes Jimmy, the first time I've ever done anything like this. I've never thought of linseed oil. I will look into the contents. I was thinking vegetable/mineral oil or the like?

    A mineral oil would work well also, atleast it wont putrify over time. The spoons are looking really good, you've definitely got the flare for it.
