Hand Carved Spoons

Just wanted to share some recently carved spoons I made of Magnolia and Dogwood. The sibling spoons are Magnolia and the other, Dogwood all carved by axe and knife. The weather has been awful lately and had a moment of sun to snap a few quick photos.

That had to be fun, I love making kitchen utensils, my wife uses them all the time. I need to make a few more spoons one day soon also. Your spoons look great.

I love carving, really quells my anxiety. I'll post some more of my spoons and bowls soon. I'd love to see your kitchen utensils!!

One of my nieces just turned 16 and I'm wanting to make her a keepsake box so I will be asking for advice in here! I have some cedar I'd like to make it with.

Hand made. Those are keepers. Nice to use for the memories they hold.
Hope to see many more from you.

Thank you so much for the kind words. Apologies for the late response, "life" is in control, and I flow with it like the wind. Lol

Thank you so much. The Magnolia has such a history and story behind it.

This is an eater made of Cypress. I love carving on Cypress, but the smell isn't the most attractive. Have any of you noticed that while working with it?

This one is Poplar. Though this breed is invasive to this area, it is fantastic to carve.

How about a feast dish such as a salad bowl?

Soon as I can, I'll post. I've made some salad servers, those seem to be what I'm favoring lately.

I know it is cliche, but try carving some olive wood. I turned olive wood pens a couple weeks ago, and there was a fresh olive oil smell in the air. It was delightful.

(And yes, I do wear a dust mask, but the olive oil scent comes through.)

I would love to get my hands on some olive wood. Do you have any photos of those pens you turned? I'd love to see them.

My spouse and I made pens for her large family as holiday gifts this year. If you look closely at the photo, you will see three wide pens in the middle. The outer wide pens are made from olive wood. (The middle pen is carob wood. None of the other pens is olive wood.)

When I want to post a photo of my work, I usually do it in the "What did you do today?" thread. Here is a link about the pens (with the olive wood ones) and a description: https://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f2/w...0/#post2026981
