  • Wood for carving spoons

    I am a new carver and would like to try my hand at carving a spoon. Any recommendations for which wood to use?

    I would suggest using snipewood. It has absolutely no grain, takes perfect stain even on the ends, and is available where ever the Boyscouts camp. It can be carved with dull tools, never needs sanding, if it splits, it heals itself without glue, never gives spliters, makes no dust when carved with power tools. It is a true carvers dream!

        AHEM...in my defence you will no doubt remember that the word 'spoons' ended up being 'sthingys' on this site for quite a while. No one seems to know why. I assumed that the use of that word was indicative of a smart-alec who was posting a spurious question. My smart-alec response was apparantly in error, for which, I appologized to the persons posting the question. However, I still prefer snipewood over all others!
