In between other projects, I’ve been able to squeeze in some spoons. I have these ten finished and available. I’ll provide another shot of each one below. If you’re interested, send me an email at email@example.com. I’ll update the status of each spoon below as they sell. Update: All of the spoons in this batch have sold now, thank you. Updates won’t show up in your email browser. If you would like to pay by sending a check, please let me know your shipping address. Otherwise, I’ll assume you’d prefer to receive a Paypal invoice. Shipping is included in the price listed for each spoon. All of these spoons are straight from the knife, finished with pure food-safe linseed oil, cured in my lightbulb kiln.
It’s worth noting that I don’t think these spoons would be here without the influence of Wille and Jögge Sundqvist. Check out Peter Follansbee’s post from earlier today to see why I’m mentioning that again.
#1: Maple, 8 3/4″ x 2 3/8″. Ladle/serving spoon. The form of this spoon practically jumped out at me when I saw the crook laying on the ground. The flow of the curve seemed like an ideal setting for a school of fish, along with a chaser on the finial. The crook bent on two planes as you can see from the second photo below. SOLD
#2: Lefty cherry eating spoon, 7 1/2″. This one is definitely for a lefty. The bowl is sort of coming toward you in this shot, so it is foreshortened. Another view is in the overall shot at the top. SOLD
#3: Maple serving spoon, 9 x 2 5/8″. This maple crook had a lot of figure, making it tough to split out, but a nice spoon. SOLD
#4: Righty maple eating spoon, 7 1/2″. That dark little pin knot on the handle led me to a fun detour with the chip carving as you can see in the detail photo below. SOLD
#5: Maple serving spoon, 7 3/4″ x 2 1/4″. Short crook that made for a nice server. SOLD
#6: Cherry serving/cooking spoon, 9 5/8″ x 2 1/4″. There are magical times in the fall, walking in the woods on breezy days, when leaves are tumbling and floating down all around you. Those times led to this pattern. SOLD
#7: Cherry serving spoon, 9 1/8″ x 2″. SOLD
#8: Rhododendron little server, 6 5/8″ x 2 1/8″. This is a shallow server with just a little bend. I had some fun with sort of an hourglass idea on the handle. SOLD
#9: Cherry stirring/cooking spoon, 14″ x 2 5/8″. Unusual for me, this spoon is made from a straight piece of wood, rather than a crook. With just a little bit of crank and a long beefy handle, it can handle stirring the stiffest of batters. SOLD
#10: Rhododendron serving spoon, 7 1/4″ x 2 1/8″. From a nice little rhododendron crook, this one could also serve as an eating spoon if you have a really wide mouth and are focused on efficiency. Otherwise, it would be most ideal as a server. SOLD
