Very nice spoons. What tool(s) do you whittle something like a spoon with?

Very nice I am definitely going to have a go at a spoon now. You pushed the final button. Thanks
a couple of gouges to rough the bowl
roughed the handle shape with a drawknife (but other tools work fine as well) and refined with a wide chisel. I've been using a 1" chisel as a carving tool a lot lately for some reason. I like that you can avoid the corners easily with it and do "slicing" cuts. Probably means I need to sharpen up some knives or something
Same wide chisel to do the bulk of removal on the outside of the bowl (play with the drawknife for that but I really need better workholding for that.. thinking of making a shave pony).
made somewhat extensive use of my iwasaki carving file (medium flat, also have a half round and looove both of them) to cleanup the curves and finish the outside of the bowl.
- two gouges; a 3/8" wide one for steep cuts and the 1/2 - mostly use these: http://www.leevalley.com/US/wood/pag...24&cat=1,41504
- iwasaki carving file
- Flat bench chisel
- spokshave makes it faster but optional.
Nice-looking spoon, Ryan,
I looked it up and confirmed my suspicions...that's clearly dunnowood.
