Intro: Handmade Spoon and Wood Engraving
One day, I was so bored, that I thought to myself, have I ever made a good spoon? Of course I have, but those were awful and didn't look so good. So I simply took a piece of wood and started making one...
Step 1: Tools and Materials
- Spoon chisel (it's like letter U)
- Angle grinder
- Paper knife
- Piece of cloth
- Piece of wood (for me it was Oak)
Step 2: Spoon Carving
First thing to do, is to carve out the inside of the spoon, if your chisel is sharp enough this step will be easy for you...
Step 3: Adjusting Shape
- First I cut off the unnecessary wood from around the bowl
- Then I cut off the wood around the handle
- After that I chiseled some spare wood from the back of the bowl
Step 4: Grinding
After all the chiseling it's time for grinding, so I took my angle grinder and grinded off the spare wood.
Also I made a hook on the end of the handle, so it could be hanged somewhere.
Step 5: Engraving and Oiling
I started with drawing the pattern, and then slowly using the paper knife, I engraved the pattern..
One of the hardest parts was to sand every part of the engraved handle.
And after that only thing I had left to do, was to oil the wood, so I took some oil and a piece of cloth and oiled the spoon...
Besides the engraving, I think this project is suitable for everyone, it's quite easy and can be made in short time (took me 3-4 hours). So try it yourself, and have fun!!
