Spoon Modeling Techniques and Ideas

Spoons #1.skp (182.5 KB)

The screenshot shows my self-critique of three spoons. I’m developing a style and am interested in improving it. I’ve used tools like Circle, Scale, 2-Point Arc, Follow Me, Dave Method among others. I like carving wood spoons.

One possible method in SketchUp for Web (Free, Go, iPad)


Nice work @Royce !!
I think the handles look a bit strange though…

I like the way you made a grid and then diagonals to tweak the shape. I have to practice that.

Yes, transition and too cylindrical.

Me too!! :slight_smile:

I mean the curves…
The spoons I know don’t have handles that are bended…

Click in sequence on the scenes tabs of this SU file for ideas.

Please notice that I created this file in 2014 as an exercise to use SU without plugins to learn how to use the basic tools.

Yes, I like using scale too like you did. I will keep practicing. I’m going to post what I did meanwhile on the Royce’s Models thread.
