8 Paper Birch Kitchen Spoon Set

This set of 8 Paper Birch Kitchen Spoons comes from this one round of wood.  I’ve riven out the billets here, and tied the wood back together with twine for illustration.

The billets are roughed out with the hatchet.

Further reduced into spoon blanks using the drawknife and shaving horse. The #5 spoon’s bowl is roughed out with the bent knife.

Drying process complete, the spoons are ready for the last go round of decorative finial carving and a touch of light sanding.

This set is numbered on the back of the finial. My Roman numerals need some work…
