    What do you use for the triangle inlay cuts? It's a presure punch ?

    It's chip carving. I use a small blade and make three cuts all angled in. The chip pops out as the third cut is made.

    Wonderful form, all of them. Classical beauties. Villie would approve and admire the lines I am sure.

    I can't show these pics to my wife, she'd ask me to make one for her. She would be so disappointed. Nice work.

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Hoof, I don't know....Wives tend to like our attempts. My wife still uses one of the first ones I made...and it's no beauty.... :)

    Your spoons are elegant in form, and your chip carving is wonderful. That black walnut eater just got added to my library of spoon designs to attempt. Beautiful work.

    These are so good. Flowing lines and surfaces... my spoons seem like a bunch of dead ends!! Thanks for the inspiration.
