  • Kitchen Spoons

    Hello all,

    I'm working on bringing some design ideas to reality and thought some may be able to lend a hand. I plan to make some kitchen spoons detailed with simple fretwork.

    I'm trying to find something that I can put into a drill press that will sand out a domed recess for a spoon. I found an accessory for the Guinevere sanding system but I'm not quite ready to get that yet. I haven't been able to find anything in my searching. Any ideas? Thanks!

      I never found anything to put in a drill press to help make the bowl shape in the spoon, but I did finally get some good advice and bought some accessories for my high speed carver...kinda like a high speed dremel capable of sustaining a high rate of speed and power. I use a flex attachment and some various carving burrs, in particular a round burr for hollowing out the bowl for a spoon. It works great. Also, the carving accessories are very good for doing decorative work on the handles of wooden spoons. Much more versatile that an attachment for your drill press.
      Here are some spoons I've made just to give you an idea...

        I dropped my subscription long ago, so maybe I should not chime in, but I dropped it mostly due to the pattern pull out.

        I do not have a flat bed scanner, nor do I want one, so that is my issue.

        But the result is that if I cut a pattern to scan, I have also cut the parts of...

        +1 on NC Scroller's suggestions. I would add that on appropriate patterns stop using the grey as it would make it easier to copy.

        It says a lot if Fox Publishing does not comment on an issue like this. Even if they said they are aware that people have concerns and are looking into it...
