Step 1: Materials
-Wood (i used old oak flooring)
-Bandsaw (Coping saw)
-Small belt sander(utility knife)
-Curved chisel (this project can be done without a curved chisel...it just takes a long time. It is just and extensive process with a knife and sandpaper)
-Linseed oil or other foodsafe finisher
-And a whole lotta sand paper
Step 2: Design
Start some sketches on paper
Step 3: Rough Cutting
With the wood ready transfer your design over.
Sharpie it on so it is easily visible
I had to first saw off the edges to get a solid piece of wood.
Saw out the rough shape with a band saw or coping saw.
Step 4: Time for Sanding
Shaping is a fairly simply concept just slip on 120 or so grit belt and sand away. Don't sand too fast and always stay in control.
Step 5: Finishing the Handle
Get to the desired finished point and its time to work on the bowl.
Step 6: Bowl Carving
Draw out the bowl size on the bowl
Use the wood chisel and carve away.
Be careful not to split the wood, try to just carve it
Cut from all sides and work with little force
You can use a hammer or wooden chisel hammer or just push it by hand.
Go only a little bit at a time, no rush.
Any questions, Ask away
Step 7: Linseed Oil
Step 8: Don't Stop Reading I'm Not Done
Please everyone...i love getting responses. Tell me what I have done wrong. I learn mostly from my own experience and research. Always looking to learn a thing or too.
