First of all we split the churbak, we take the length of the chump with a margin, your spoon will be shorter by a couple of three centimeters shorter. We set aside one half aside, and with the second we begin the work. There is no photo.
We choose on the side of half, where it will be at the spoon scooped, this side should preferably be without knots. From the selected end, we measure a segment that is 3-5 centimeters longer than the future scooped out and we make an even transverse cut:

Propyl do about to the middle of the wood. The cut should not be too deep, it will be better if you leave the stock, rather than drank the work piece. It is advisable to remove the bark from the workpiece in advance in order to better control the thickness of the cuts and the thickness of the cut.

Next comes the ax. We begin to remove the layer of wood from the side of the scoop, we should have a smooth slide, which ends exactly at the cut. Do not rush to shoot a lot at once, control the process.

We do the same thing from the side kept the future spoon, we begin to remove a layer of wood from the middle of the plot, retracted supported. Here you should get the same smooth hill, as from the side scooped. Be careful when working with one side, do not damage the opposite.

We set the bend of our future spoon, do not be afraid, if you have missed the layer of wood and left the cut, later this place can be corrected with a knife.

Further, having armed with something, than it is possible to draw, we draw a contour scooped. Depart from the end of 2-3 centimeters, as there may be lurking cracks. Along the edges, also leave the stock, after all we are cutting the spoon for the first time.

Now begins that part of the work, which with a special tool is performed much simpler and more qualitatively than with a simple knife. I will not describe how this work is done with a simple knife, for it will be a completely different spoon. We will cut the recess specials. tool, cranberries. It is better to cut with a sharp-cut tool, so you will cut the wolf, and not crush them.

We start to work with the width of ours, with an ax remove the wood until you leave the width of the handle with a margin of 5 cm.

When finished with the side of the handle, grabbing hold of it we attach with a knife to scoop it. Control the wall thickness with your index and thumb. The walls should be thin, but also strong, so it is better to leave the thickness in reserve.

Do not rush, plane carefully, especially at the edges scooped. Since in this place the tree can simply break off. Exact work planed with two hands. With the thumb of the left hand (or vice versa, if you are left-handed - with the right), we press
the butt of a knife that we hold in our right hand. The thumb of the right hand also presses against the butt.

At this stage we have the following:

We return to the handle of the future spoon, we begin to discredit its width. I show how to do it with a knife, later, when you put your hand in, you can do this work with an ax. You can pre-mark the outline of the handle with a pencil, so it will be easier. Shank, held and pen - it's all the same =)

Further, approximately from the middle of the handle we scrape wood with an ax or knife as shown in the photo, so we set a bend.

It turns out that:

We begin to scrub the wood from the back of the handle.do not make the neck too thin, this is where the pen goes into the scoop.

From this side we plan movements towards ourselves. Like this:

It is the hardest to push the handles from the end - there is nothing to grasp.

Before you begin to sand our spoon, walk again everywhere with a knife and cranberry, giving the tree its final thickness. But be careful with the scoop, its edges are better to entrust the skin. Of course, if your tool is honed into a razor, you should not worry. I put a dry bark in the skin, it gives the sandpaper stiffness. The skin is the roughest, on a fabric basis.

Getting from the back side scooped:

Grind inside scooped:

In the same way we continue to grind the entire spoon. Having finished sanding with coarse sandpaper, we pass everywhere with medium sandpaper, and then with zeroing. This spoon was cut out of raw wood, so I will finally polish it, when excess moisture leaves the tree (after about one week). But now you can admire the finished spoon:
