Make something, post it and it morphs.... Aspire/v-carve pro makes it really easy and fast.
Thanks to Michael for the ideas
Spoon holder modified by using offsets and a 1/8" brass pin for the hinge. [pin ends rounded-over with a hammer]
After doing the offsets I flipped the outer 'ring' about a line [vector drawn at hinge pin point] and moved it below the spoon holder.
1/8" hole drilled thru both parts at the same time using double sided tape [between parts] and painters tape [top and bottom]
Hole in center portion then drilled 1/64" over size.
Finish is Tung oil
Same tool paths for pocket and inside radius.
Made using northern red oak. When making thin parts pay attention to end grain in potential weak spots. In this case the end of the part that holds the spoon handle which is only 1/4" thick. First photo shows the flat-saw diagonal grain which multiplies the strength of the wood.
Drilling straight holes using inexpensive machinist tools from Harbor Freight and wood shims [plywood under end of spoon holder].
NOTE: tape was removed for these photos.
