Nov spoon 06, – SOLD
the first of the olive. Was it Russian Olive, or Autumn Olive? Beats me. Nice curvy, dense wood. Leftover from last time. My friend Ron Dean is a potter, he says that folks never but the last one of a batch. Prove him wrong, or this one ends up in my kitchen.
L: 8 1/2″ W: 1 3/4″
NOV SPOON 013 – SOLD
several of this batch as cherry spoons…this one a large crook. Maybe from this section:
L: 9″ W: 2 1/4″
NOV SPOON 014 – SOLD
this might be the other one. It’s easy to lose track…
L: 9 1/2″ W: 2 1/2″
NOV SPOON 015 – another from the cherry tree I took out of here a few weeks ago. A slighter crook, a nice serving or cooking spoon.
L: 9 3/4″ W: 2 1/8″
NOV SPOON 016 – SOLD
one of the small lilac spoons. these things have a mind of their own. Some of the lilac twists so much that you can’t use it. Others need some wrestling to get them into shape…
L: 7 1/4″ W: 1 3/8″
NOV SPOON 017 – SOLD
another small lilac; this one’s got a lot of heartwood and a shape that really flows from one element to the other.
L: 5 5/8″ W: 1 1/8″
NOV SPOON 018 – SOLD
the biggest of this batch, one of my largest overall. Sycamore in the US, the plane tree elsewhere in English-speaking lands. This one cranked around at the end of the handle. So an organic shape to say the least. A big huge serving spoon.
L: 16″ W: 3 1/4″
NOV SPOON 019 – SOLD
forget this garish color, this one’s apple. A real beauty; this time all sapwood. one of my favorite cooking spoon shapes.
L: 10 1/2″ W: 2 3/4″
NOV SPOON 020 – SOLD
another cherry crook. This one’s a smaller one; I’m trying to use up all the bits I have around. Why burn it, when it can be a spoon?
L: 7″ W: 1 3/8″
NOV SPOON 021 – SOLD
an apple crook, a spacious bowl streaked with heartwood. A big short-handled serving spoon.
L: 8 3/4″ W: 3 1/8″
FRAMED PANEL – WALNUT – SOLD
I got a positive response from the framed panel I offered last time, and when I was cutting that one, I made one from walnut too. I had a few leftover bits that were too small to make anything useful from, so I decided to try this interlaced scroll pattern again. I hope to keep offering these in the future, but this might be the last framed panel this season. I have one oak one carved, but not sure there’s time to frame it.
H: 17″ W: 15″ D: 1″
$400 including shipping in US.
BOXES – a few boxes still floating around the house. shipping in US included.
This first one is a small-ish box, pegged & glued at the corners. Wooden hinges, pine top & bottom. Red paint in the background of the front carving.
H: 5 1/2″ W: 15 3/4″ D: 8 1/4″
I have no period example with painted lids and bottoms, but the box left plain. In this case, I painted the pine because it’s glued-up from two narrower boards, rather than one single board. Then a coat of linseed oil overall. Pintle hinges, wooden pins in the rabbeted corners.
H: 7 1/2″ W: 23″ D: 15″
I have one joint stool here leftover from when I was shooting the stuff for the book Make a Joint Stool from a Tree. This one’s carved on the two long aprons. All oak. Shipping in US is included.
H: 20″ W: 14″ D: 13 3/4″ seat is 9 1/2″ x 16″
