late November spoons & bowls for sale

 I’ve been making furniture lately, so haven’t had much time for spoons and other woodenware. I did finish a few things in the past month, thus this posting. So here’s the offerings for late November – some spoons in birch and cherry; a few hewn bowls and a couple of oak panels. Two baskets that I finished in the early fall. If you’d like to order something; leave a comment letting me know which item. Paypal is easiest all around, but I accept checks too if you’d rather do that. Just let me know. If you order more than one item, there’s just one shipping charge.

I’ve had a couple of people ask about baskets, so I’ll post a couple here and we’ll see what happens. Hand-made baskets are a world apart from the cheap imports we see all too often. To see about how I make these, there’s lots of blog posts about them, many of which are here: 

I pound the growth rings of white ash apart, then soak the resulting splints, trim them and weave them. The handles and rims are made from steam-bent white oak or hickory. I have many of these that I use every day, after 25 years they are still holding up fine. 


basket #14-01 – SOLD


ash, with white oak rims and handle. This one’s called a swing-handle, because the handle does just that, instead of being fixed in place. Linseed oil finish. 

H (to rim) : 8 1/2″    Diameter: 9 1/4″

$250 plus $15 shipping in US

basket 14-01 swing handle


basket #14-03 –  SOLD 

H (to rim): 6 3/4″    L: 12 1/2″   W:  9 1/2″
$200 plus $15 shipping in US

all of my baskets are white ash, this one has a hickory handle and white oak rims. this basket has a linseed oil finish. I sometimes use this to accelerate the patina – I have both finished and unfinished baskets, there’s no functional difference.

    Traveling, good for me. These are usually gone by the time I get to them. I would appreciate the above spoon.

    I don’t do Paypal so check would be best for me. Please provide details.

    Thanks for the blog and inspiration. Hope to take a class soon.

  2. Peter, I have what may be an odd request. I am looking for some riven white oak billets, 36″ in length, 4″ across. Pie shaped is fine, and 2″ wide at the tip is great, while still being 4″ from front to back. I’m looking for anything from 2 to 4, 36″ lengths.

    Riven from the buttress is my preference, as it has proven to be so incredibly strong. These are for escrima sticks.

    Is this anything you would be interested in selling me?

    Tim Berube
