A Traditional Carved Love Spoon

I carved this love spoon a few years ago.My first one. It wasn’t the masterpiece I hoped for, but not the disaster I feared either. I had seen the pattern somewhere and was just curious to see if I could actually do it.

This is a pretty old and generic design and has likely been carved many thousands of times the last couple of hundred years or more. It was originally meant as a declaration of love to a prospective bride by a suitor to show his affection and his impressive manly skill.

I first scroll sawed the pattern and then did the rest with carving gouges and a knife. The wood is unfinished Birch. A fun project!

Tools: scroll saw
