YouTube on Spoon Making at the Bench – Real Woodworking

I enjoyed doing this video and the previous one on making spoons with the axe and knife. I still used an axe for some of the work but showed a variety of different techniques many if not most spoon makers never use to get you thinking about the wood, the different tools you can use that increase the versatility of using hand tools. This is my Real Woodworking Campaign in action. I do hope you enjoy.

    Paul,

    I have always loved your passion for woodworking. Your videos are always so well done because your passion for what you are doing shines through.

    What a great idea! Would be good to know the answer to this. I’m guessing its possible as only the teeth have been hardened, and the rest of the saw is the right thickness to get flex out of. Ooo going to give it a try at the weekend now :)

    I also really enjoyed the video Paul and enjoy your way of working wood very much. I think making spoons is going to be really fun and this will be fun for my 6 1/2 old Grandson as well.

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and experience.

    Steve

      Jennie’s 5 year old grandson is already asking when we can start building bird houses on the “new bench”. His little brother’s motto at 3 years old is “Let’s DO that!” so I think he’ll be just as anxious to make things.

    • You can use vegetable oil, mineral oil or salad bowl oil. Some people say that veg oil goes rancid but I have never had that happen. Canola oil works fine too. I think mineral oil is the most commonly used. It is totally unnecessary to use any oil except for appearance.
