My Hand Carved Spoons - Fleur Di Lis and Heart



In addition to my antique restorations and countless other projects, I occasionally do a little wood carving.  This is a spoon I just finished out of solid walnut. It is about 11 inches long.  The fleur di lis design is carved on both sides.  Whenever I carve spoons l like to sand them to a fine lustre, and then hand rub them with pure mineral oil.  That way they are food safe.  This particular spoon is available for sale in our Etsy store for $39 plus travel.













I also just finished this one, out of solid mohogany.  It was not as complicated to carve as the fleur di lis, but I really like it.  It has sort of a prim, folk art look to it, I think.  It is also in our Etsy store for $19 plus travel.







I thought since I was carving a fleur di lis spoon that I might as well make some fleur di lis oven rack pullers, as well.  This one is out of solid oak.








This one is made out of solid walnut.  Take your pick, oak or walnut,  $19 ea plus travel in our Etsy store.
If you have any interest in one of these you can visit our store at....



Have a teriffic day!

Hi Karryann,

Thank you so much for becoming a follower. The mohogany table on my headed is an aftershot. I am also working on a "parquet" style table top, that I am doing a similar hand-rubbed, formal finish, on. I will be posting the staining portion of my tutorial on it in the next day or so. It is going to be a real show piece. Glad you could make it by.
