Nice looking spoon George. Something I have not tried to make yet 🙂Anonymous14 December 2012 at 5:09 pm #4820
You’re all doing some lovely work lads 🙂
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.Anonymous16 December 2012 at 8:50 pm #4945
Your bowl is a very well done piece Juryaan and it honestly looks like a nicely turned bowl in contrasting shades and timbers. 🙂Anonymous17 December 2012 at 8:14 am #4974
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. 😉
