I have always been fascinated by old-fashioned traditions and customs.
The practice of giving love spoons started in Wales during the 17th century. They were handcrafted by male suitors as a romantic gesture for the maiden they admired.
Traditionally, love spoons declared a gentleman's intent to court a lady. Given as a romantic sentiment, it symbolised a carvers devotion to producing a work of art worthy of their beloved.
The tokens were typically crafted from a single piece of wood. Some even believed that they represented an early form of engagement ring.
A piece of oak was selected and cut to accommodate the size of the love spoon. The love spoon was cut using a scrollsaw following a design. I then handcarved it to enhance the fine detail. Next I sanded it to a smooth finish and coated it with several coats of lacquer to protect it and highlight the beautiful grain of the wood. The lacquer used is water and heat resistant, and toy safe.
