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.
