Author Bjorn P (24 days)
Dear Carl,
Which chisels do you use?

Author Richard Ross (3 months)

Author Toptyg (5 months)
nice vid

Author kodogijo (8 months)
Somehow I like it when the vid shows where you accidentally scratched your
first spoon. Dunno, it's kinda show us that it's not as easy as it looks..
But you sir, are really awesome!

Author Jim P (1 year)
The dust that gets in the air from sanding would be quite messy. It seems
like 6" bowl will fill a 5 gallon bucket with shavings. I can't imagine
those getting tracked all over the house.

Glad you left the blooper in. I thought I was the only one who did that!

Author Carl Jacobson (1 year)
Thank you,

Author Carl Jacobson (3 years)
Hi Ron, Thanks I think we all could put a nice video together of bloopers.

@tannerturlington You should expect to spend between $250.00 to $700.00 on
a lathe. I just got a new Delta.

Author Carl Jacobson (3 years)
Thanks Nic. Thought it would be fun. Carl

i've been thinking of making a spoon, GREAT job, thanks for posting!

Author Illya Lukinov (5 months)
so many energy wasted only for one spoon

Author Caleb Welte (1 year)
the foodstuff probably helps that out a bit

Author sunfish fiesta (1 year)
I'll actually answer it. :) The ones in malmart are machine made. So they
go much faster.

Author tannerturlington (2 years)
@haydenHD Thank you sir! I thought they cost more than that.Glad they don't!

Author tannerturlington (2 years)
I would like to purchase my own wood turning machine. How much am I
expected to spend and what do you recommend?

Author jgordge1234 (1 year)
Is the paste wax and mineral oil a food safe finish and if not what is?
Plus great vid

Author bigjc12000 (1 year)

@haydenHD were can i get one of those clamps

Author Anthony Rodriguez (1 year)
Well, I don't know about this video, a special machine and almost ten
minutes, I think if I go to the dollar store I get 3 of those for $1 in 1
minute, but as a hobby may be. Good Luck.

Author Binh Nguyen (9 months)
What's name of the machine you use to make the handle of the spoon round ?
I love your video

Author Dominik Wilken (1 year)
Good Job :o

Author Isaac Gosse (9 months)
you need to sharpen your roughing gouge

Author GDLutz (2 years)
@haydenHD What model is your delta. Are you happy with it? I am looking in
to buying a lathe, I have been turning in my high school woodshop but since
I am about to graduate I would like to get my own lathe.

Author cepson (1 year)
Is there any reason, other than the logistics of cleanup, that I shouldn't
set up a small lathe inside the house for turning pens and other small
items? I'd like to set one up in a spare room.

Author Declan Horan (3 years)
Great stuff Hayden. I got two little spoon carving chisels a wile back and
have yet to use them. Will give it a go soon. The turning of the handle
certainly speeds things up. Dec

That's not nice referring to WALMART as a Chinese shop.

Author Carl Jacobson (1 year)
I was just joking. I'm sure there not done on a lathe like this.

Author rizakan (2 years)
it"S ok when the mistake happens in the start, awkward is when you are
about to finish and the you f***k it up;) it happens to me alot

Author mac Harrison (10 months)
I think that all your work is magic and that you should make another spoon
video, because i enjoy watching them

Author Carl Jacobson (10 months)
It's a wood lathe.

Author Chris Matthews (1 year)
I'd sure like to see some quick and dirty alternate methods of hollowing
out the bowl of the spoon without a wood lathe. I saw a guy do it with an
angle grinder with the Lancelot blade in about 5 seconds but that blade is

Hi Peter, There is a button under the video that says subscribe. Just click
on it. Thank you, Carl

Very nice, you do wonderful work

Author KurrenPuupaja (3 years)
Hi Carl, here from Finland, One day I too just might learn to do some
"small" (nice) things ;-)

Author Mezico (1 year)
The process a man uses while trying to teach in an educational video is
surely SLIGHTLY different than what is done by Chinese laborers with a set
up to crank out a spoon every 10 seconds. And I agree with the person below
who said that the cheap spoons are most likely not lathed. I've watched
videos of mass produced wood working where they basically use a large
powerful sander to create the round shape to imitate a lathe turned object.

Author Bardlettt (2 years)
I lol'd when you fucked that first spoon and the grain split, but really
I'm jealous I don't have your equipment. This is pretty awesome.

Author creativeobsin (1 year)
I was here

Author jskazekage1984 (1 year)
