  1. Sanding may be boring, and I agree it is,  but showing the highlights can be very valuable. So please don't skip over these parts. But after you have shown the basic technique it is fine to skip ahead.

  2. Hi Sam, I have been turning spatulas, too. My shop is set up and used for all around woodworking so, I have lots of off cuts and being a typical woodworker, I can't stand the thought for wasting wood. So, turned spatulas and spoons are a good way to use short narrow boards of maple and cherry. I enjoy the spatulas but carving the spoon bowls is really difficult and time consuming. Maybe you have some ideas that would make it easier. By the way, I use an air filled contour sander that fits on my lathe to do much of the sanding and contouring (very good results). Thanks for you videos, you are always an inspiration, Dan from Ohio

  3. That turned out nice. I didn't catch what oil you used. I like to use walnut oil on these things and bake for a while in the oven to cure up the oil.

  4. Sam, glad your going down this road for the kitchen.
    good items to use up some wood that otherwise wouldn't find a need.
    I'm also partial to bulbosity.
    Cheers,

  5. Great idea for a series Sam I have a few spoon and spatula projects on the go also, some furniture projects. Seems the ideas puts the old projects in hold. You have inspired me to start again and finish these up. You can only move things around fr so long 🙂

  6. I like it. Did you use a drum sander on the drill press? Never mind I just read the below comment. Some sort of carving knife might work too. Never used them though.
