S-s-s-spoon is from the same piece of macadamia wood as was the ‘mac’ spoon but the color is 10 shades lighter.
The Cat Burglar spoon is from maple, his mask is incised and painted, his whiskers are fiber optic strands, eyes are ‘jewels’ (he’s a thief), and the spoon bowl ‘sack’ is tied off with waxed cord.
The Shack spoon is from the same piece of witch hazel as the witch spoon… in fact it was the piece that came from the bandsaw cut-out (that’s why it is the same shape). I first tried to cover the roof with pine needle ‘shingles’ but that was a complete failure, then I tried soaking peanut shells and cutting out little tiles but that went south as well. So, I ended up just scratching the roof for texture.
None of them turned out the way I intended… but, I’m on to the new ones.
Thanks for taking the time….
