  1. That 24 looking awfully good! :) I can see the continuity in the bowl shape from 23...

    1. Yes, it is tricky to do the same spoon twice but I think I will try to make some more like #24.

  2. Very nice Rob! I like the second one a lot, it has something... I don't know how to call it, 'dancing' to it with those curves. The third one seems very sophisticated with it straight lines. Maybe for Sunday porridge?

    1. Curves are the thing. Well, curves and planes and where they meet. The octagonal section of the handle comes from the back and the 'cheeks' of the bowl's back - it is how you carve it. Some carvers make a deliberate delineation between the bowl and the handle and that design has a lot of merit. I'm enjoying finding out whether I can still define both parts at the same time as keeping them together visually. It isn't rocket science but it is a design decision you have to specifically make and then follow.

  3. The last one, that is. I love the roundness.

    1. I agree. I don't really like round spoons to use, but I like this one.

  5. I really like the simplicity of Spoon #24. The round bowl is nice, and the curve of the handle is lovely.

    1. I think that's it. Simplicity. I finished the carving twice but still the handle was wrong - too thick. And it still may be but it felt balanced in my hand by this stage so that's how it is.

  6. I like these. Are you using them to get a color change going?

    1. Right now, I'm not using them at all, except as navigation guides for the next spoon.
