***This blog has moved to my new website. New posts will be made here***

I opened up a cherry log. It really useful to make a couple of wooden wedges before starting the split. The wedges help split the log, and won't damage the axe if they come into contact.

I split the log into ten sections, ready to be turned into ten cooking spoons. 

By the end of the morning I had ten spoons roughed out. 

I used my adze to help speed up hollowing he bowls out. 

The twca cam also quickly removes wood from the bowl, and I find it easier to get a smooth finish.

I've got five pretty much finished, with a few minor refinements still needed. I am really surprised with the variation in colour between the spoons, especially as they're all from the same log. 


  1. Wow what a cool idea. Very impressive way of portraying the overall concept. I am sure this blog will get anonymous outreach. Such work should always be appreciated.

  2. Thank you for these simple yet amazing ideas
