I’ve finished up several spoons, all from crooks of varying degrees of bend. I was pinching myself as I worked with some great crooks in this batch. All straight from the knife, except for #5, which I sanded. All finished with flaxseed oil and cured with heat. If you’d like to purchase one, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment. I’ll confirm that it’s yours and then you can pay by Paypal or by sending a check. Thanks for looking.
#1: (top photo and the two photos below) A large cherry server. 12 5/8″ x 3 1/2″. This one will let you get a generous portion of mashed potatoes while still being considerate enough to just take one scoop. $130 includes shipping. SOLD
#2: Rhododendron cooker/server. 9 5/8″ x 2 1/2.” This one came from a rhododendron crook with beautiful figure. A balance of crank that will perform well for cooking and serving. $110 includes shipping. SOLD
#3: Norway maple server. 13 3/4″ x 3 1/2.” This serving spoon can come in from a high angle. The design at the back of the wide handle was spur-of-the-moment. Sort of a negative finial I guess, and can serve as a hanging hole. I would call it the uvula spoon, but that might hurt its chances of selling. This Norway maple is hard stuff, especially in the crooks. $120 includes shipping. SOLD
#4: Cherry server/ladle. 12 1/2″ x 3 1/2.” I’m not sure when a serving spoon becomes a ladle, but this one has a big bowl and a very steep crank, so I think of it as a ladle. Whatever you call it, it would serve up lots of chili or soup. $140 SOLD
#5: Long Norway maple server with a wide bowl. I decided to sand this one in consideration of the figure in the wood. 13 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. $150 includes shipping. SOLD
#6: Cherry (sapwood) serving spatula. Narrow width suitable for serving cake or brownies. 12 5/8″ x 3 1/2″. This cherry crook had the perfect lines for this piece. The fibers run true through the handle, neck, and blade. I carved a (wave?) pattern into the handle and painted with artist oils. $110 includes shipping. SOLD
#7: Cherry cooker/server. 11″ x 2 3/4″. With just a little crank, this spoon is great for stirring, mixing, and cooking but can still serve. $95 includes shipping. SOLD
