Turning a Wooden Spoon

So, I went out to the shop and took some pictures. This is a very different spoon than I have ever made before. Just made it up as I went along.

First get a stick of firewood out of the pile and mount it in the lathe.
One end is mounted off center...


The other end is centered


When you start to turn the off centered end the cuts should start to show very soon


Start roughing out the bowl and handle


The top of the bowl is not cut at this point


Make the handle any design you like and sort of egg shape for the bowl.


Decorate the handle as well


Cut away the waste at the band saw


Drill out the bowl


Use bent chisels, scorp or bent knife to hollow and smooth bowl


I just got this bent knife, it is very easy to use and cuts a lot of wood quickly


It makes smooth fine cuts as well


Just a little sanding


And it is done. Now I just have to oil it


Total time 2 hours and 15 minutes.
