making laminated wood spoons
Manufacturing de cuillères en bois avec la collaboration de Pat Laperrière).
The size of the spoon is the same as the size of the large spoon in the kitchen and is laminated with walnuts and cherries.
Pat laminated them and cut them into rough sizes, then I carved them into final sizes and distributed them out.
Then send one of the spoons back to him and keep the other one, we like to use it to prove that we \"use the spoon\" together \". Materials-Cherry wood-Walnut wood-
Saw Wood mineral oil/beeswax finish (or miter saw)
Belt Sander pipe clamp joint belt saw hot glue gun random track Sander mold grinder screw fixture first cut the workpiece to the correct width on the table saw.
The first is some larger walnut strips, and then some thinner Cherry strips, in contrast to the walnuts.
He then uses a radial arm saw to cut all the strips into the same length, which will eventually be the length of the spoon.
Prepare for glue-
Up, he used a sander to flatten the surface of all the parts.
The back plate of the Sander is very flat, so this is completely flattened and any saw marks are removed from the workpiece.
The wood glue is applied to the surface of all the parts and then assembled together to make some walnut racing stripes.
Pat clips them with some pipe clamps in order to hold everything together when the glue dries.
Nevertheless, he made sure to leave glue between the blanks of the two different spoons so that he could later separate them.
When the glue is dry, Pat pops them out of the clip and runs a face on the connector to flatten it, then passes the blank through the planing bed to get it to the thickness.
He\'s finally free.
Hand-draw the shape of the spoon on half of the blank, then wire-cut along this line on the band saw.
It can then be used by flipping the cut-off of the first cut to the other side as a pattern so that each side is mirrored.
He then cuts on the band saw to create the shape on both dimensions.
In order to cut it into a 3rd size shape, he no longer has a flat surface to refer to, so Pat uses a few drops of hot glue to temporarily stick the cut-off to the appropriate position.
He then drew the lines at the bottom and top of the spoon and cut them off on the band saw.
He can now separate all the pieces and we now have the rough shape of the spoon.
Delivery from Canada to the United States is easier said than done. . .
The first attempt was a quick shot over the boarders. . .
It didn\'t seem so good, so he sent them to me.
There is nothing wrong with the backup plan.
After about 829, the package arrived at my store.
I started to improve the shape of the spoon on my band saw.
It\'s just a matter of cutting a bunch of small cuts off the corners of the shape to get around everything.
Safety Note: just eat a little bit or it will want to tie it up.
After biting the corners down, I can refine the shape further by running backwards along the teaching direction of the band saw blade, basically just grinding the shape a little smoother.
With this action, you just want to be very clear about what you are doing and keep your hands away from the teeth of the blade as you work a bit backwards from normal.
The last one o\'clock shape of the spoon was done with my random track Sander.
The sanding shape makes the surface completely smooth and produces some very nice curves.
You can see the front on the left and the back on the right.
The sawdust is a lot, but now it starts to look like a spoon and the handle in the hand feels good.
I\'m just repeating the process to form 2nd.
To determine the throw part of the spoon, when I carve the spoon, I trace a line along the edge of the spoon.
I first formed things with a mold grinder attached to the compressor.
The drill bit has a round nose, so it is quite quick to carve the material and can be recessed into the spoon.
Once I spread it out into a rough shape, I take an old plain blade and circle it on one side of it.
This profile will light up a small scratch card and scrape off the rest of the inside of the spoon.
To get it to a satisfactory finish, a lot and a lot of scraping was done, but the wiper actually left a surface finish that looked great.
In the last step, the spoon can apply for finish.
I use a mixture of mineral oil and beeswax like the cutting board I use.
Although we may never actually use these, it ensures they are completely Food Safe just in case.
The oil will bring color and the beeswax will make it a little shiny!
Thanks for checking out the build, but never miss the build video.
Pat is a great video editor and did this with me and you won\'t want to miss it. He\'s even sub-
