Dave has made it back in the shop.
I picked up a Mora 164 and wanted to try my hand at making a spoon from a log.
Here is my attempt.
This little project was a blast and I only cut myself once. I also had a good chance to use my shaving horse I made for my bench top. Boy did it work great!
History of spoon is long and interesting. Nobody knows when first spoon was used, but archeological findings can place some of the ornamental and religious spoons in the area of 1000 years BC. Those ancient spoons made from wood, flint, slate and ivory were in possessions of Egyptian priests and Pharaohs, and were made in very exotic and strange designs, often describing important religious events on their hilts and bowls with the use of hieroglyphs and elaborate drawings. By the time the age of Ancient Greece and Roman Empire, spoons became produced from bronze and silver and were more commonplace among wealthy class of people.
Here is my wooden version.
Please be careful. Some of the things I do are dangerous. It is not my fault if you get hurt. Use your brain, be safe.
