2 from the lathe. The scoop is the right size for my morning coffee. The opener feels good in my hand.

Short attention span is the norm lately. I’ve been trying to come up with several things that might sell.

The scoop is 5” long x 2 and 1/4” , mineral oil finish.

The letter opener is 9” long x 1 and 1/4”, Olympic antique oil finish.

These are really nice! I have been trying to think of some smaller stuff to build too. I don’t have a lathe or a tablesaw or anything and I am having trouble thinking small. I have always been a big picture girl rather than a detail oriented one. I am also trying to force myself to build some of that god awful (my opinion) “primitive” stuff. I really hate making junk out of welllll junk. But that seems to be what the people want around here. I keep thinking that primitive trend is going to go away soon- but it hasn’t. Dorky wooden signs on rotted barn wood, tool boxes of rotted barn wood, 5 board stools of rotted barn wood and so on. For me they are BORING to build.

Nice Scoop!! You can market that letter opener as “The official Letter Opener of the movie Twilight” LOL :) Open your biller or Stake a Vampire a truly multi purpose tool!

well done on both items buddy! I think both of them are sell-able. You might try

http://www.indigenouscraft.com/ it is an art gallery near downtown that sells those sort of things. Probably 50-50 split …something like that.
