Honey dipper exercise using Golden Ratio for design


Today I present a short video on turning a honey dipper from a scrap wood piece of a plum tree. As an exercise I designed the honey dipper with respect to the golden ratio rules. I often found it difficult to make design decisions, for example during turning a wooden piece and adding a particular shape to the work piece. Where to set the intersections and add the curves. How to split an object into different sections? So many questions and decisions that cannot be changed anymore once the decision has been made. There are different proportion ruleset out there, that are in use in art, architecture and craftmansship for a long time. One of this proportion paradigms is the Golden Ratio,
