Carving a Large Wooden Spoon

This large wooden spoon has been on my list of fun projects for a long time. I used several old cedar cut-offs from previous projects to glue up my blank which I slowly carved away using a variety of different cutting tools. Now I may have taken the long way around the horse by committing myself to this giant glue-up, but the pieces had sentimental value from past projects so the sacrifice in time and effort was well worth it to me. My friend Anne from ‘Anne of All Trades‘  took the time to forge a draw knife which I permanently attached to the sculpture once I was finished carving. There is a bit of back story to spoon carving between Anne and I which I outline in the video down below. I encourage you to check it out if you haven’t already. As always, thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Cheers – April
