Spoon Carving Process Pictures

The other day, a friend of mine came over to take some pictures of me at work on a wooden spoon.  (The pictures are for an article forthcoming in Woodworker’s Journal, but more on that another time.)  Here are a few pictures from the photo shoot.


Carving the bowl with a gouge.


A little drawknife work.  Using a drawknife at a regular bench vise is a little awkward, but with practice it can be done efficiently.


Catching a shaving from the spokeshave in mid-air, while one of my daughters looks on.


Her “aggressive” face.


Scraping the bowl smooth.


And the finished product, about 40 minutes’ work.

    Nice work and great pictures. They were clearly taken by someone who knows what they’re doing. Any photoshop work?
