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.

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…

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.

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?

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.

BOXES – a few boxes still floating around the house. shipping in US included.

#01

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″

#06

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.
