Seven Spoons

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 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

    As always David, beautiful work, beautiful wood and beautiful photography. I shoot a lot of my work and fighting glare is always a challenge, love the setting and the light. John

    Thanks, John. That arrangement that I use often is just that board sitting on a workbench in front of a window in my shop. I just use the natural light coming through the window, which of course varies depending on the day and the time of day. When the sun is coming in too directly for a couple of hours, I wait. The glare can be in issue sometimes and I should probably figure out some sort of a diffuser like a very thin fabric or something.
