Spoon Making Class on June 1, 2012

Wooden Spoons

Projects made in the class

After our recent article about making a wooden spoon from a log, several people expressed an interest in taking our class on spoon making, so we’ve scheduled an additional class on Friday, June 1, 2012.  If you would like to take it, you can register here:

Spoon Making Class

More About the Class

Carving a wooden spoon by hand is relaxing and enjoyable, and the spoons and spatulas you can learn to make work very well in the kitchen and make great gifts. My family uses wooden spoons and spatulas in the kitchen on almost a daily basis, and we have a few that are over 20 years old and still in use.

In our one day hands-on workshop, you’ll make the four projects pictured above:

  • a stirrer made of pine (top in the photo)
  • a spatula (third in the photo)
  • a spoon (second in the photo)
  • and a ladle (fourth in the photo)

For the spatula, spoon and ladle, we’ll be using kiln-dried hardwoods. The hardwoods will vary from class to class.

In making the projects, you’ll be learning the basics of how to use a spoon gouge, a drawknife, and a spokeshave to shape wood. These are skills that will help you in other woodworking projects down the road.

    I have always loved wooden spoons. I use them every day. But sad … I will be in California May and June. I hope there might be another schedule before next year. Your classes have given me skill I never had. Life has been enriched.

      Jack,
      Thank you for your comment. We’re looking into the possibility of scheduling another spoon making class this year and will let you know.

      Jack,
      After the June 1 spoon making class, we don’t anticipate being able to offer another spoon class until next year. If that changes, we will let you know.
