First Effort

First Effort

Everyone has to start somewhere. Having found out about lovespoon carving through speaking with Ralph Hentall at the Practical Woodworking Show in London and having recently started courting my future wife, I decided to have a go myself . The simple design incorporates the most frequently used traditional symbols of chain links and a captive ball and presented an exploration of the carving techniques involved. I chose lime for this spoon due to its predictable working characteristics.

All carvings shown were commissioned for clients and are not for sale. For information about commissioning a love spoon like this or to have a conversation about commissioning a love spoon design that you have in mind please contact us via the contact page of this website.
