Today is a “nose to the grindstone – shoulder to the wheel” day of work on the upcoming books from Fox Chapel Publishing.  So I am off to work and will post something more substantial tomorrow.

In the mean time I highly recommend Fox Chapel’s Wood Carving Illustrated forum.

Wooden spoons make great projects for any pyrographer.  The small bowls, front and back, of the spoon can become your background for these free doodle patterns.

Most manufactured spoons are made from bamboo, beechwood, birch, or poplar – all woods that are excellent for our wood burning.

Since your pattern work is burned – scorched – directly into the wood the design that you create becomes a permanent part of that kitchen utensil.

Happily as wood burners we are not limited to just spoons.  Spatulas, forks, knives, and even rolling pins make great pyrography backgrounds.

Beginner’s Wood Carving, Spoon Carving

While getting the Monday, January 7th free doodle patterns post ready I came across all of these links on wooden spoon wood burning, and wooden spoon wood carving.  Since I had them all in one place I thought I would share them with you.

If you wood burn wooden spoons I think you might have some fun learning how to wood carve your own.  Basswood blanks are a great wood to start your spoon carving journey.  As your carving skills grow you can then move onto poplar, maple, and beechwood – all of which burn well.

If you are a new wood carver there is nothing more fun than creating your own kitchen spoons.  Anything goes from the classic straight handle oval-bowled spoon to intrigue Welsh Love spoons, even modern twisted handle pouring ladles.  Spoons are one of those ‘guaranteed’ success projects.

Links to Basswood Sources:

Heinecke Wood Products!    *** A favorite site for me

The Carving Store   ***  Ebay, This is a go-to source for pre-cut rectangle and square blanks.

B W Hobbies   *** Ebay, offering long basswood boards

petersapienza   *** Ebay, offered pre-cut spoon blanks

Spoon, Fork, and Ladle Styles for Wood Carving

Wood Carving a Basic Wooden Spoon

Today the steps for carving a basic wooden spoon have been posted on my new page – Wood Carving a Basic Wooden Spoon.    So go grab your carving kit, gloves, and a 3″ by 1 1/2″ x 12″ basswood blank and join me as we work through the general steps needed to create your own kitchen stirring spoon.

Now before we begin – before some retired mechanical engineer writes me that my project spoon is not a perfectly dissected ovoid or that my handle is not absolutely parallel to the center line of the bowl – just let me say that spoon carving is an art form that has natural imperfections.

Handmade spoons have dings, dents, bends, wobble curves, and even warping handles.  No matter how hard you try to sand your spoon perfectly smooth I guarantee that you will discover an area of five that need a little more attention.  If you want a “perfect spoon” buy one.  If you want to have fun, enjoy your carving, and be really creative … Carve One!
