spent fathers day on a 'from log to spoon' (almost, still needs finishing cuts).

I spent Fathers day workin on a section of a Kwansan Cherry log to carve out a little asymmetrical eater. its funny how the strong sunlight can bleach out some areas and highlight others LOL the bowl felt pretty smooth and I didn't notice all the cut marks with my sunglasses on.

Free cherry, Persian walnut.

I have taken out a cherry tree, and some walnuts, if any one close to Oklahoma City would like some.

An inshave/scorp my buddy and I made. First cuts.

65mm from 01 tool steel. Proof of concept seems solid. Making a 50mm soon.

Cuts really well…look forward to seeing where the design goes.

White part of cherry spoin tastes bitter

Hi, I have carved a serving spoon from cherry sap and heartwood. I have noticed that the white part, the sapwood, tastes bitter while the dark part does not.The spoon has a walnut or linseed oil finish.

It is not really a big deal as it isn't an eating spoon. However, I am still interested why itis tasting bitter, I have not noticed it with other spoons. Thanks.

Teardrop shape bowl

Created this bowl using a 12mm Japanese spoon gouge. I focused mostly of the edge of the tool and did not put a lot of pressure so that I can take thin pieces of wood to slowly remove the material. Let me know if you have any questions!

Help with Sharpening

For the life of me, I can't get the hang of sharpening my WoodTools compound curve spoon knife. I've tried several methods, watched loads of youtube videos, but can't seem to get it right. Any recommendations, tips, or best practices?

Homemade Milk paint questions.

It took me a long while to find a recipe for milk paint that you can make yourself (without powder), but I just wanted to know if you can freeze the curds to use small quantities as and when you need it?

I was planning on freezing it in icecube trays and just popping a few cubes out and making a tiny batch whenever I want to make some paint. I know it's based around Casein (?) which is a milk protein and I'm not sure whether freezing will burst the cell walls or whatever and make the paint split or be useless somehow.

Truthfully I haven't even found what in particular the protein is doing for the paint. I did find that the hydrated lime is just a filler/thickener and that you can use bicarb or soda or borax to substitute. Are they bonding to the protein in order to thicken? And will freezing the curds ruin it and turn it to formless mush that won't adhere?

Btw the recipe I found is:
5 parts milk quark/curds.
1 parts hydrated lime/bicarb of soda/borax.
1.5 parts water, take from this if you need water to make your dye.
