Default Going to the Dogs!

Dogwood, that is.
Here is my latest offspring... 14.5” Dogwood carved spoon finished with Mineral Oil.
This youngster has a mind of its own. Instead of standing true and proud, this guy decided to stray from the straight and narrow. The handle has bowed to one side since carving....seems as I carved material from the handle, it released some ingrown tension resulting in this curvature. There was a knot nearby and the grain in this area is the cause of the movement.
I could call this one a reject and toss aside but it is my kid so he is unique, special, and has a personality of his own.
This afternoon we are attending a Super Bowl party at a new neighbors house and this is a “Welcome to the ‘hood” gift for them.

Looks like a right handed scraping spoon to me. Can be used as a regular spoon but designed with a slight curve to make scraping the bowl better for a right handed person.

Naw it compensates for the cooks with the right leg a little shorter than the left.

Good spoon Charlie.

Great looking spoon. If I recall correctly, you haven’t made a lot of these or been making them very long. This looks like it was done by a veteran, very nice.

Thanks Jay, I have been carving the spoons for about 16 months now...probably about 20+ to date. I just try to do my best.

As usual, Charlie is making me look bad. Some day, Charlie, I hope to half a quarter of your skill set. You are killing it. Great job.

Thanks Lance......you have advanced a lot in the short time you have been turning....keep turning and trying new techniques/turnings. If you can make it to the skill enhancement sessions, it will put you on the fast track...then just keep employing those learned skills to new pieces.

I use my right index finger for cake batter and icing. Spoon misses too much. Back to the topic, those are nice and will get brave and try some kitchen utensils.
