New Spoon

DSC05486Finally I found time to make another spoon after a break of several months. There was a last log of dried applewood left which was big enough to carve a spoon out of it. Applewood has a reddish colour and nice texture but is quite hard to cut. This time I didn’t used any machines to cut the raw form – I did everything by hand just with my knives. I ordered a curved spoon-carving knive which allows me to make more precise and nicer shapes than before. The manufacturer is called „Erik Frost“ from Sweden. The steel is made in the famous forge of Mora.
First I intented to not use sandpaper but in the end I dropped that idea because the spoon would look too raw and it should be a nice gift to my girlfriend.
