Slide of the Month Extra: Spoon


December 2023

Time to make: 3 hours

Finishing: .5 hour

Original design:  Bill Macfarlane

I was on assignment for work when I noticed a large wooden spoon hanging on the wall in the office. Everyday for a week, this kind of carving on the spoon was calling out to me. So finally I had to ask what's with the spoon? The fellow I was working with smiled and said "Sometimes you need to spoon feed people." That's all I needed to know I had to recreate that carving.

As I was traveling, I could not bring a carving knife in my carry on so off to a hobby store (Michael's or Hobby Lobby) I went. Using an X-acto knife and a piece of basswood, I spent that night carving and sanding away until I made the slide affectively known as "Spoon". When I got home, I gave the slide a couple of coats of shellac to finish it off.
