The November spoons, first batch. If there’s one you’d like to order, leave a comment citing which you’d like. I can send a paypal invoice, or you can send a check. Shipping in US is $7.00. (up from before, I had done $6 and was finding that I was paying more than that on average)

Nov spoon 06, the first of the olive. Was it Russian Olive, or Autumn Olive? Beats me. Nice curvy, dense wood.

That’s right, this one’s not a spoon. I often have had requests to sell just the carved panels. So I finally decided to listen and see if it works. To me, they need the frame to make them coherent. Here’s the first one – based on a joined chest with drawers from the Connecticut River Valley. We have a door like this in our kitchen cupboards; it’s the kids’ favorite. This one’s oak, naturally, with walnut and cedar accents. It could hang on a wall, or be incorporated into a piece of furniture if you were inclined. 

 approx. W:  15 1/4″  h: 19 1/2″ ; about 1 1/8″ thick

$400, including shipping in US.

  1. Mr. Follansbee’s recent appearance on a television show called The Woodwright’s Shop intrigued me enough to check him out on the web; to see here that he’s almost sold over $700 in spoons for this month was a bit unexpected given his serious yet nonchalant demeanor towards carving spoons, but now I’m all the more impressed with his work and dedication to the art of woodcarving. The raw utilitarian design balanced with the perfect amount of ornamentation results in a truly beautiful piece of art on such a level that one might almost feel reluctant to put such a piece to the use it was designed for, nice work sir.
