Wooden Spoons

I had some pine and wanted to make some wooden spoons, so after a quick spin on the lathe, I got a couple of spoons. I didn't try to make them identical, that's for machines, so I went with 'what the wood wanted' and ended up with two different personalities.



The convex parts are easier than the concave, I had to buy so wood carving tools to get anything that worked at all in the spoony bit.


After manufacture, I painted them in white acrylic paint and then spent about four hours putting detailed patterns on to them with a fine liner.
