  • "Cowboy Spoon"

    Here's a little 8" spoon I just finished. I have always liked using leather patterns in my carvings and I am also a fan of Jordan Straker who uses them in gourd carvings and other items. I have never seen them used on a spoon, but it seemed like a good idea! Thanks for looking!

      Great technique and a nice spin on the "usual" carvings, Mike.

              Wow! That looks great with that pattern. I would have never thought of using a leather pattern for that.

                What you have done is harder than it may appear. I have looked three times to see if you really sewed it or carved the thread. If it is carved, you did an incredible job matching top and bottom. May I ask, how did you do the background? I have been working on the chaps of a cowboy and I am thinking a wood burner. I sure am impressed with your spoon.

                  No, the thread and everything is carved. The background is just stippled using a small ball tip in my wood burner pen.

                      Very creative Mike. Mightily impressed with your "stitching".

                        Mike - I thought you had used gel stain so it would wipe off the stitching. You produced an interesting effect.

                          This took me an age to make up my mind about the stitching. So realistic.
                          Eventually I thought: "It must be carved." I'd like to be a fly on the wall and watch.
