In between my furniture work, I got a chance to finish some spoons (a few begun in Australia, so weird woods to US eyes). I also cleaned my desk and found some videos I did with Lie-Nielsen. If you like any of either, leave a comment below, then I’ll send a paypal invoice later. Price includes US shipping. Additional charge for shipping beyond.
December spoon 01 – SOLD
One of the Australian spoons. Casuarina, sometimes called “she-oak”. This one was all sapwood, or nearly so. I had some students struggle with heartwood of the same tree, but I found this one quite agreeable. Great figure in it, for those that like that stuff.
L: 9 5/8″ W: 2 3/8″
December spoon 02 – Rhododendron. Maybe the last of that batch I cut here last spring/summer. A nice little crook with a big bowl.
L: 6 3/8″ W: 2 1/2″
December spoon 03; SOLD
Black Walnut. I was cutting & splitting firewood last week (next year’s firewood, this year’s is all stacked) and found this radially-split section of walnut. Too straight & clear to burn, too small to be part of furniture. So a serving spoon.
L: 11 3/4″ W: 3″
December spoon 04; SOLD
a very long serving spoon/stirring spoon. Decidedly crook’d shape. Apple.
L: 15 7/8″ W: 2 3/4″
December spoon 05; SOLD
another big one. Another Australian timber. Called “native cherry” – Exocarpos cupressiformis related to sandalwood. It was a real nice wood to carve; like our fruit woods, a little softer than some. Smooth.
L: 15 1/8″ W: 2 3/4″
The handle was large enough for me to carve an S-scroll like I use on boxes and chests.
December spoon 06; I think this one’s birch. A steeply-curved and swept shape.
L: 9 1/4″ W: 2″
