Spoon blog

Postby rodtermaat » Tue Jul 27, 2010 4:34 am

I am a frequent reader, but rarely post. I have started a new project documenting my carved spoons. I am still working thru my current inventory and think there are about 40 more spoons to add. I know that I have carved at least 350 spoons over the last 5 years, but most where sold or given away. It has gotten so that I can not remember them.

Hopefully this will at least provide some method to my addiction. I plan to post more about my process and the tools that I use over the next few weeks. For now it is just a document of spoons. I need to find a bit more elegant format then blogger, but just getting them posted it a big step. I am no expert photographer so be nice.

Thanks. My favorite part about spoon carving is the variation in style. I have friends in Mn who far outclass my skills. I admire their swedish angular style that I have a hard time emulating. I carve by hand using a shaving horse, a special knee horse, and various knives and gouges. My best knives are made by Del Stubs in Northern Mn. He runs Pinewood Forge and is a great guy to be around.

Anyway thanks for looking. rod

Lovely blog, I too like Del`s knives and only have an open sweep hook knife from him, it is a great tool, which I only have ever sharpened on a strop, even though I have had it over a year.

I also like his fan birds, a very interesting style which I have not been able to properly make as of yet.

Nice blog, rodtermaat. I've added it to my collection of blogs that I follow. I love the snake with the frog.
