1 - Birch serving spoon - this was the first spoon I made on Friday afternoon, engraved for my brother Adrian who turned 50 on the Saturday.
2 - Birch serving spoon - the side elevation doesn't do this one justice - I aimed to make a bowl with a straight keel, like the hull of a boat, and the handle is an irregular hexagon - actually rather nice to hold.
3 - Fat birch spoon - I have a natural tendancy to make my spoons (as well as my knives) over chunky - this is something I am going to consciously work on in the future.
4 - Willow eating spoon - made during Steve Tomlin's class, a more ridgid copy of one of his spoons (engraved RVH for my wife - just what she needed, another wooden spoon!) Next time I'm going to soften the edges a little.
5 - Birch eating spoon - a copy of a really dainty spoon that Barn put in the gallery. Suffice it to say, mine's not a patch on his, but I was working on achieving that really curvy profile, while using straight wood. It's really nice to hold, though my bowl's a little deep.
6 - This is the small scoop I made with Janharm ter Brugge in his class. He showed us a really simple method of carving these little spoons and scoops - I look forward to experimenting with it later.
