Who wouldn't love a stack of tiny bowls πŸ˜„πŸ‘Œ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Haven't been to the workshop for a few days now 😣 Because I'm busy doing other stuff that requires my attention (😧). Well, soon I'll be back where I belong. πŸ˜‰ πŸ”ͺ
Walnut bowls πŸ‘€
Maple 🌳 spatula ✌️
Carving a maple spatula. The wood might look soft, but it's actually pretty hard πŸ˜₯πŸ”ͺ. It's not green wood though, guess that would be a lot easier to carve in.
As many of you know, I have a normal job as a construction worker. And on evenings and weekends I do what I love to do, carve and turn stuff. 😊 But about 6 months ago I decided to only work 4 days a week and have Fridays for my more serious hobby. Was a good decision! Even though I get less money, my life has more value. Work and money ain't everything folks.. πŸ˜‰ Have a good weekend! Photo: @elin__ingrid
Let the fun begin πŸ™Œ Don't know what I'm making yet though πŸ˜„
Scoop in the making. ✌️
Been a productive day --> now evening chill.. The Giveaway ends in a few hours, so there's still some time to participate. You'll find it a few posts down in my feed. | [The bowl in the picture is available in my shop btw, link in bio]
Another bowl from a piece of poplar 🌳
More of this today ✌️ If I remember correctly, someone warned me back in the days that if I start with woodturning I will get addicted to it. πŸ˜πŸ™‹πŸ‘ˆ Well, I might be, just a little πŸ€— Anyways, finished my webshop today, so if you're interested, go check it out. Link in my bio. (Would recommend to check it out from a computer though). And if you haven't noticed, there's a Giveaway going on down in my feedπŸ‘‡ Worth taking a look at!
Apple-wood coffee scoop with its personal holder. πŸ˜† Had a lot of fun reading through your guesses and suggestions on my last post. 😁 You sure gave me a bunch of good ideas on what to make next πŸ‘ŒπŸ˜„ So thanks for that! πŸ‘
More bowls in the making. πŸ™Œ Happy weekend everyone! πŸ‘‹
Here's a few more pictures of yesterdays salad servers. I'm happy with how they turned out! πŸ‘

Making a pair of salad servers ✌️
A bowl in progress using the "world map" wood. 🌍🌳 For those of you that don't know what spalted wood is, (the "map" that you can see in the piece of wood here). Spalting is wood coloration caused by fungi, mostly found in dead trees but can also occur in living trees. The wood (poplar) I'm using had been dead for many years when I found it. Can't explain all the magic that happens with the wood when it's slowly decaying, but it's not my doing at least. I'm just happy I found it and can do something with it. It's not easy to work with though.. πŸ˜…
