    Brent- no template;  but if you use the shape of the bottom half of the nut bowl and scale it to the spoon it works pretty well!  I actually shaped one to match a mixing bowl and my daughter-in-law loves it!  It’s all in the journey!

    That’s a great spoon George. I bet goldilocks and the three bears ate their porridge with spoons like that!!

    Not exactly like in the book , but here is my first carved bowl.

    It was a lot of work (for me it was ) and it needed a lot of scraping and sanding,

    but as with the other projects i loved every minute of it and again learned a lot

    by doing it.

    juryaan, doing something you enjoy, as well as learn from has to be good. For my money I think it looks great, the wood looks amazing. what wood did you use ?.

    Nice work buddy, keep it going 🙂

    Thank you Ken, means alot to me,hearing that from one of you guys.

    the darker wood you see on the outsides and in the middle is beech.(was the slatted frame from my daughters old bed)

    I don’t know the english word for the two lighter pieces , but here in Holland it’s called Vurenhout.

    It actually is one of the cheapest woods available here and it is mainly used for  construction.

    I think that it is not very suitable for furniture because they often have a lot of knots in them.

    Your bowl is a very well done piece Juryaan and it honestly looks like a nicely turned bowl in contrasting shades and timbers. 🙂

    Hi David,

    i used two gouges (don’t have more) a 30 mm no 7 and a 12 mm no 7.

    and a curved cardscraper and sandpaper.

    Very nice work Juryaan. I especially like the consistency of the rim; that’s been really tough for me.

    Thank you John,

    it was tough for me also.

    I used a compass for making the round of the bowl , after that i narrowed the

    compass by 10 mm for the rim so i had a line to work to.

    Don’t know if this is the correct way but it worked for me.

    I think you’ve done a lovely job and uncovered good technique for hand crafting bowls.  Another interesting design – using the same timber combination – would be an ellipse shaped bowl to partner the round one. 😉
