Started this ladle a few months ago.
I took a fairly good looking piece of old dry maple firewood I’ve been saving and roughed out a pepper handle and solid scoop and handle, then put it aside.
I saw it the other day and decided to finish it up.
Kind of bored with it. It was bulky and unexciting.
Started to mess with it and it ended up like this. Really free form. No plan, just happened. You know, listen to the wood, kind of thing.
Now I really like it and it’s inspired some other ideas for this, maybe in some canes?
The seed pod thing is there too, that’s kind of cool.
Anyway, here’s a new kitchen tool, with the old pepper theme…............
Carved with a flex shaft attached to a Roto-zip.
Finished with the cutting board, veg. bowl, type stuff.
Hope you enjoy….........................
