Finished wrapping with waxed nylon thread, but still needs an edge

Pieces parts.

Forged from a hay rake tine.

Oak(?) forked limb for handle.

Pretty fun multi media project. Cant wait to try it out on some spoons.

Just make something!

Nice. Bought my wife carved spoons at an art fair. Use them all the time. There are handles all over my backyard. lol

Thanks Hank! That's what drew me to this was the simplicity and availability of the materials.
I haven't whittled purposely for very long time. Making this handle was very fun and relaxing.
This design is supposed to be a "Jack of all Trades" as far as carving is concerned. But I might still make some other curved blades for more specific purposes. At least with wood carving I can probably do some on my lunch break and not make my coworkers as nervous as if I had set up a small forging station in the back of my truck, which I have thought about doing. [biggrin]

I've wanted to make a carving knife for a while, but it's not very high on my to-do list that I simply haven't. Now this is making me want to, though.

I hear ya. This just kind of happened because it seems like the fall is perfect weather for whittling [smile]
I have an old straight razor that I want to make a smaller more spoon specific knife out of too, when I find the time.
