I’ve always got some spoons in the works. As good crooks are discovered, I rough the spoons out and set them aside, then finish carving them when I can. Here’s a group of eight I’ve got together now for sale. Unless otherwise noted in the description, these are all straight from the tool and carved from natural crooks. Finished with pure linseed oil cured in a kiln. If you’re interested, email me at email@example.com. You can pay by mailing a check or through PayPal; please let me know your preference in your email. Prices include domestic shipping. Thank you.
There are comparison shots above and below, heads and tails, respectively. Then I have an individual shot of each spoon further down.
#1: Maple, 8″ x 1 7/8″ A small server with a lot of crank. $110 includes shipping. SOLD
#2: Cherry, 14″ x 2 3/8″ A long multi-purpose spoon from cherry heartwood. $140 includes shipping. SOLD
#3: Apple, 9″ x 2″ A small server or maybe an eating spoon if you’ve got a really big mouth. There’s a little pin knot on the right side of the bowl that leaves a narrow void on the underside of the bowl. $90 includes shipping. SOLD
#4: Cherry: 15″ x 2 1/4″. Mainly sapwood with splashes of dark heartwood on the back. Long spoon with a slender bowl dictated by the form of this unusual crook. Another one good for multi-purpose use in the kitchen. Gives you plenty of reach, too, if someone’s trying to steal a cookie. $145 includes shipping. SOLD
#5: Birch, 8″ x 2 7/8″. A short serving spoon/ladle with a deep bowl. Ideal for that person, or fish, who doesn’t follow the crowd. Artist linseed oil paint on the handle. $190 includes shipping. SOLD
#6: Cherry, 13 1/4″ x 2 1/4″ Another good long kitchen spoon that’s ready for anything. $130 includes shipping. SOLD
#7: Maple, 11 1/2″ x 2 3/4″ This serving spoon had such gnarly fibers running through the handle that a scraper and fine sandpaper was the way to go in that area. The forward portion has been left from the tool. Detail photo below of the carved lettering and touch of artist linseed oil paint. $200 includes shipping. SOLD
#8: Cherry, 11 3/4″ x 2 3/8″ The last one of this group is carved from a straight radially-split piece of cherry. Just a very little bit of crank and dish to the bowl. More of a spatula/paddle good for stirring and cooking. $80 includes shipping. SOLD
