Introduction from Sydney Australia

Whimsical Wood

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,


My name is David Stanley, I live in Sydney, Australia and am delighted to have joined this forum.


I have begun carving welsh lovespoons (two spoons so far). My carving interests tend toward smaller scale carvings, along with a number of other woodcraft interests. I have done only a little carving so far, but I would contend that welsh lovespoon carving, is according to its historical nature at least, an art that is uniquely meant for beginners.


I have already been inspired by the work I have seen on this forum and have a good hope that my own work can only be improved by exposure to what I see here.


Thank you for the forum, David.


Welsh lovespoon Carved from one piece, (the rule for the lovespoon tradition) of rock maple.

Welcome David,


This complex carving appears to be beautifully executed. I can imagine holding one's breath with many of the steps taken towards completion! Thank you for introducing yourself, and welcome to the forum.
