SPOONS for sale, March pt 2

14-37.  SOLD

 

This is another with a hook on the underside of the handle. I tried something different on the handle, carved “BIRCH 2014”  – then highlighted w oil/coffee mixture.

14-46; here it is again, but in an unknown very hard wood. Lefty for certain. The wood is heavy, it came from a shrub growing between a red maple swamp & a cranberry bog. Scaly bark, deciduous. One day I’ll figure it out. I loved carving it. I have one more piece to use up.

SOLD   14-38. American sycamore. I have bits & pieces of different woods tucked away. Now & then I dig through the pile to see what’s there. This sycamore had dried out, so I moved onto fresher wood. Later I went back & took a whack at it, it’s worth dealing with – a very nice spoon wood. You can use this as a righty, but it’s ideal for a lefty.

SOLD     14-39, back to the birch crook pile. A really favorite small spoon/big bowl combination.

SOLD   14-40; there’s several of this general shape – resulting from a branch-to-trunk, or small branch-to-larger branch connection. So much fun to see what spoon comes out of the woods!

SOLD     14-41. This one came out of some of the straighter shots of the birch. In such a case, it’s up to the carver to work out some shape that works, but doesn’t weaken the spoon. A balancing act..

L:  9″  W:  1 3/4″ $35 14-41 overall 14-41 side view —————————-

SOLD     14-42 – another medium server. Lots of  “movement” in the side view; not a straight line in it.

SOLD     14-43; a while back I said “expect cherry spoons” then I got a load of birch. Cherry lasts longer in the log, so I’ve been mostly working birch. But this cherry crook snuck in.

SOLD     14-44; back to birch. One of  a series where I am trying out a shape. I tend to make a few shapes again & again.

SOLD   14-45, another branch juncture birch spoon. I first carved one of these forms in 2001 – I know because it’s in our kitchen, w the date carved on it.

  1. Peter, could I buy 14-37, “Birch 2014?” It would be a spectacular reminder of the great Lie-Nielsen class — and a model for me as I continue to develop the skills you began to give me. Sue in Chapel Hill
