‘Wring’ Around The Collar (those dirty wrings) is from a dead branch I cut off a Sea Grape growing in the alley way behind the garage I use. About 7 3/4” long and a very hard wood. Fowl play is suspected.

Two-Gether is carved from two joined pieces of poplar burl. About 5” wide.

The maple burl spoon is about 5” long.. and has a natural area left on the end of the handle.

Jellyfish is about 5 1/2” long.. not sure of the wood… can anybody help? Very soft and sanded quickly. It was supposed to be an octopus but due to technical difficulties (ahem) it became a jellyfish.

The High Heel spoon is cucumber wood and is about size 9.

Thanks for having a look… and GO KENTUCKY!!!
