SPOONS & MORE, AUGUST 2014

here goes for August, just under the wire. As usual, just leave a comment if you’d like to order something. Paypal or check is fine; just let me know which.

Frame & panel – Connecticut River Valley pattern –

Excuse the harsh lighting; I had no place in the house to shoot it.

I love to carved this pattern; I have done it several times, I plan on getting back soon to a chest I have underway with this as the central panel, and the vine motif all around the framing. We have a panel like this in our kitchen cabinets – I never really plan out the framing design, it just flows around. This time I really like how it turns each corner. Oak, with Atlantic white cedar moldings and black walnut plaques. Linseed oil finish.

H: 19″  W: 17 3/4″
$475 including shipping in the US.

A milestone spoon = the 100th for this year. Cherry. A server, because I’d hate to meet the person who could wrap their mouth around this bowl.

#14-102;             SOLD

 

one of a series of small birch spoons with more or less pointed tips. The idea, shown to me by Robin & Jojo Wood, is that you scoop with the side of this spoon, and have less wear & tear on the end grain. a lot of “traditional” spoons have tips something like this.

L: 7 3/4″  W: 2 1/8″
$40 plus $7 shipping in US.

UPDATE, SEPT. 8, 2014  –  THESE ITEMS BELOW ARE SOLD – 

 

CHIP CARVED SPOON RACK – SOLD

I think of this as a mixed metaphor – my spoons are derived from Swedish work, but this spoon rack is based on American pieces. I have never really studied any in detail; I worked mainly from photographs. So the construction is conjecture on my part; wrought nails fasten the body of it together, and also fit the ledger the spoons slip into. Because my spoons are willy-nilly, not all of them will fit in a rack like this; some slip through, some stick up. In the 2nd photo I have 4 birch spoons from a recent batch that all fit. The box holds junk; car keys, sunglasses, stamps. Hangs on a wrought nail. 

White pine, with paint made from iron oxide and flax oil.

H: 16″ W: 12 1/8″  D: 4 3/4″

$ 300; with the 4 birch spoons; $420; plus $10 shipping in US.

  1. Hi Peter,

    I’ll take #97 apple if you still have it. Can always use another of your spoons. Btw, just signed my nephew and myself up for your Oct class in CT…can’t wait!

    Thanks.
    Kevin A.

  2. Hi Peter,
    I would like 14-99 & 14-83 if still available. I can do either paypal or check whichever is easier. thanks

    Ben

  3. Hi Peter,

    I’d like 14-103 & 14-90 as well. I’m not a lefty but what’s not to love about that nutty lilac? Not sure if you’ve shipped the apple spoon yet; could you let me know if you need separate shipping for these. I will send you a check. Thanks so much,

    Karl
