Spoons, furniture & more for sale

My timing almost couldn’t be worse, but I have some items finished for sale. They can’t come in the house, in fact two were bumped out. In between driving places and eating voraciously, have a look. If you’d like to purchase any of it, just leave a comment here & then I will either send a Paypal invoice or you can send a check. But leave the comment so I can mark the items as sold.

The main problem with my timing is that I’ll be away from December 4-15 or so. That means the larger items; the joined chest, carved box, joined stool, won’t ship until December 17th. Should be fine for those who are holiday shopping. But just so you know…

There’s a lot of stuff – the furniture first, then 5 spoons down below, and after them, something new for me – birch bark containers. The smaller stuff I can mostly likely ship before I leave on Wednesday next week.

to order something, leave a comment, if you have questions, email me peterfollansbee7@gmail.com

Thanks everyone. I appreciate all the support I get here for my craftwork.

Red oak with a white pine seat. Iron oxide mixed in linseed oil, with lampblack squiggles for the finish.

This little joined stool is not new. I made it a few years ago, and completely forgot it was in the house. We found it when we moved stuff around to get the chest of drawers in place. So I took it to the shop, gave it a fresh coat of linseed oil and here it is. Priced as “gently used” –

Dimensions are H:  21″  W: 30 3/4″  D: 16 1/2″

This one was in the house, but we knew it. I just put a lid on it after several years. I wrote it up a week ago or more, but just added it here so all the items for sale are in one place.

CARVED FRAME & PANEL  SOLD
H: 17 1/4″  W: 13 3/4″
$500 including shipping in US.

It’s been a while since I made one of these carved frame & panels. I forget why, but I had the panel first, then made a frame to go around it. To turn it into a cupboard would be more work than I have time for, so it’s a wall hanging.

SPOONS

I haven’t forgotten how to make spoons, just haven’t had much time. Some of these go back to the summer when I started them.

Spoon #1, cherry crook.  SOLD
L: 10 1/4″   W: 2 1/4″
$110  including shipping in US

—————

Spoon #2,  SOLD
rhododendron crook
L: 9 1/4″  W:  2″

Carved this one in September, from a rhododendron crook someone gave me in the summer. I love to carve this wood. Some fear using it for a spoon, thinking it’s poisonous. The leaves and things apparently are, but the wood is fine. I’ve used it as spoon wood whenever I could get it for nearly 40 years.

$110 including shipping in US.

Spoon #3, black birch
L: 10 3/4″  W:  2 1/2″

A shape I accidentally carved one day for my wife, and we use it all the time in the kitchen. So I give it another go every so often. Black birch is a great spoon wood – a little harder than grey birch. I like carving it a lot.
$110 includes shipping in US.

Spoon #4, black birch
L: 11″   W:  2 5/8″
$110 including shipping in US.

Similar to above, different carving on the handle. Made them at the same time.

Spoon #5, walnut  SOLD
L: 11″   W:  3″
$110 including shipping in US.

Found it in my spoon carving basket. Finished it off while I did the others above. People go crazy for black walnut.

BIRCH BARK CONTAINERS

These are something relatively new for me. I learned bits and pieces of this work, principally from Jarrod Dahl. I like making them, I’m never going to make them as a regular thing. Last June we got some birch for JoJo Wood to carve, and I sliced the bark off before anyone could get at it. I wrapped the bodies then, and made the lids just a bit later, and added some chip carving. Then just turned some handles for them recently from butternut. I don’t imagine I’ll often have things like this; I rarely get the bark. But they are fun to make…

BIRCH #1 – SOLD
H: (not including handle) 6 1/2″ DIA:  4″
$110 including shipping

BIRCH #2  SOLD
H: (not including handle) 6 1/2″ DIA:  4 1/2″
$110 including shipping

BIRCH #6; this is the “saved the best for last” – I made most of this one in Jarrod’s class. Then added the chip carving and a boxwood handle.
H: (not including handle) 9 1/2″ W: oval = 4 3/4″ x 6″

$300 including shipping

  1. My favorite cooking utensil is a wooden spoon from your shop in the “accidental” style. So useful, even though I’m left handed.

  2. Hi Peter
    I remember you sneaking off with that bark! The Birch Bark Container #3 with the markings…$90 is calling to me…I hope it finds its way to me – if it’s not already claimed…
    thank you –
    Happy memories :)
    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving too –
    best
