    I'm not sure how many spoons I'd be interested in doing but I did make this walnut spoon/scoop for @seasonofthewoods . It's 6" long and holds just under a tablespoon.

    If anyone else would be interested in a spoon similar to this one let me know and I might make a few. The inside of the bowl was turned but all the rest of it was hand carved. Finished with 100% pure & "food safe" Tung Oil as is all my treen.
    Price for these would be about $25 shipped.

    As always, thanks for stopping by my vendor forum and taking a look!

    Sorry about that brother, since this one was a request I didn't even think to post a price. These would be about $25 shipped. I'll edit and add that to the OP.

    @T. Pollock , Tim, you can’t just say ‘inside of bowl was turned’ without showing us HOW that happens you know!

    Beautiful work. Love them.

    @NevadaBlue asked how I managed to turn a spoon's bowl on the lathe so here ya go. :dblthumb:

    Disclaimer: I'm not saying this way is safe, nor am I suggesting that anyone else try it this way. If you do it's at your own risk. I'm a tad crazy so just understand that. :3: Do as I say do and always "work safe"... don't do as I do. :14:


    I chuck up a waste block and true up the front of it leaving it slightly concave.
    IMG_7836.JPG

    Mark out the size of the bowl and punch a center for it.
    IMG_7838.JPG

    Using a live center in the hole I punched I align it and I glue the blank onto the waste block.
    IMG_7839.JPG

    Glue squeeze out.
    IMG_7840.JPG

    Turn the inside of the bowl.
    IMG_7843.JPG

    Then cut it loose from the waste block... and viola :4: you have a spoon bowl.

    :4::14::dblthumb:

    I forgot to include this one (not mine). This style jam chuck can only be used for a scoop though, it wouldn't work for a spoon (which would be less than half a sphere). It would have to be 2/3 or more of a sphere shape in order for the jam chuck to hold it in. This style is commonly used though for those who make scoops and are doing the whole thing (no carving) including the handle on the lathe.

    I have two more walnut spoons available. The only photos I have right now are of a set of four and two of these have already sold. I'll try to get some better photos to post tomorrow of the two remaining spoons.
