JUN #1 – SOLD Cherry, a long spoon. the first of many crooks, or bent branches, in this batch. These are tricky to plan, you have to “see” the spoon in the rough wood. There’s a few that got tossed, because they just didn’t work. Sometimes you hit a hidden knot, and then it’s firewood. This one has a deep bowl. L: 10″ W: 2″ $50
— JUN #2, cherry. Lefty is how it feels to me. The tree just went that way. I seem to get lots of lefty-twisting trees around here.
—JUN #3, cherry. a medium serving spoon. Double-finial. A slight crook, a long bowl.
L: 8 1/2″ W: 2 1/4″ $45 – SOLD
—– JUN #4. Yup, even more cherry. Lots of it came down in the storms late this past winter. Lots of it. This one’s a very pronounced crook, cherry is great for spoon crooks.
———- JUN #5. Doesn’t really look it, but also cherry. Just a snippet of heartwood on the underside of the bowl.
—– JUN #6. Also deceptive cherry. All sapwood, but sound. the sapwood will decay in the log soon if I don’t keep carving. This one’s ambidextrous, but leans a bit left.
—— JUN #7. Another left cherry spoon. One of my favorites in the batch. Top surface of the handle is slightly concave, to add to the shadow/light effect on the chipcarving.
L: 8″ W: 2″+ $45 – SOLD
———- JUN #8 – HA! Finally, apple. The next batch, which I am carving now has more apple in it. but this little one got ahead of the others.
—— JUN #9. Back to cherry. A very nice wood for spoon carving. I’ll never turn it down; but it’s a bit tough to work. Harder than some others like apple or birch.
— JUN #10. Cherry, with some streaking in the handle. Trapped bark or some other effect. So I quit the chip carving. I couldn’t see to cut it, and you wouldn’t see the result.
L: 6″ W: 1 3/4″ $25
———— JUN #11 You guessed it, cherry. Streaky sapwood. From a crook like most of the others; it had some tearout on the outside of the bowl. I lightly hit it with sandpaper, usually only reserved for inside the bowl.
——— JUN #12. Saved the best for last. This one is my absolute favorite of this bunch. Small, twisted. A spoon-sculpture. Righty for a change. Cherry w heartwood in the bowl. I’m afraid if you want this one, you’ll have to pay.
