First off, I want to thank everyone for the kind response to the spoons. It is much appreciated. The first batch is gone, so I have gathered a few more that are photographed and posted them here. Same as before, if you’d like one, drop me an email or make a comment right here. All the comments make it to my inbox anyway – so either method gets here. First come, first spooned. If for some crazy reason these go as quickly as before, don’t worry. there’s at least 20 more in the basket at my feet…and more in the works besides. I’m going to carve these whether anyone buys them or not.
All of the spoons are hand-made; using hatchets & knives. All have some chip-carving on the handles. Woods include cherry, birch, sycamore and some odds & ends. Finish is food-grade linseed oil (flax oil). Shipping is an additional charge of $ 6.00 in the US. Payment is either check or paypal. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like any of these, or with questions.
Meanwhile, if you want to see me carve some spoons, watch this episode of Roy Underhill’s PBS show The Woodwright’s Shop http://www.pbs.org/woodwrightsshop/video/3100/3108.html
Also I will be adding some new boxes for sale soon. Great for hiding the clutter around the house. Ours are brimming with stuff…
So here is batch two of the spoons – pictures first, then description & price. Write w any questions. If you know someone with too many plastic spoons in their kitchen, set them straight. Send them a link.
