Questions & Comments


Today we have a comment from Phyllis who writes:

“Very nice blog about spoons Bob. I have carved a couple of decorative spoons but never a practical spoon. Last week I went to Fox Chapel’s warehouse and bought a book that was printed in 2020. The book is called “12 Spoons 2 Bowls and a Knife”. Eventually I hope to carve some practical spoons from this book. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and keep on carving.—-Phyllis”

Thank you for your comments and input on the new book about spoon and bowl carving.  I have seen the book advertized but have not yet had a change to look at it.  The title of the book is “12 Spoons 2 Bowls and a Knife.”  My question is, are these all projects that can be done completely with a knife?  I’ll be anxious to see some of the spoons you carve from the book!

HOW ABOUT SOME PHOTOS! We would love for you to share the work you’ve done in the past or even what you’re working on right now!

Two times a week we go to a nice restaurant, have a little beverage, good food and companionship. She goes on Tuesdays, I go on Fridays.

I’m a self taught award winning wood carver who has been carving since I was a teenager. I enjoy instructing other carvers, especially beginners.

    1. Unfortunately I haven’t quite figured that out with my web designer yet. For now just email it to me with anything you would like to say and I will make sure it gets into the blog. My email address is: Thanks, Bob

  1. Unfortunately most of them take knives, v tools, gouges, and most likely you will need a bandsaw or scroll saw to cut out the pattern.
