The first spoon I can’t take the blame for. Back when I posted the Spine spoon, someone else suggested it looked like a dieter’s spoon… so here is a Dieter’s Spoon. Mahogany, rose thorns and a big thorn off of some tropical tree. Approximately 10 1/2” x 2” x 1”.
The Hula spoon was carved from cherry burl. I just circled the areas with the best grain and cut off the rest of it. Turned out looking like a Hula dancer to me. Arms flowing, hip jutted out and the skirt has a live edge bottom. The bowl is cantilevered and is delicately held on by a small section. It measures approx. 7 1/2” x 2” x 1”.
The ‘Night Watchman’ spoon is from a piece of bi-color maple and the bowl is stained dark to represent the night sky. I actually cut this piece wrong. It was meant to just have the moon in the sapwood but, well… you know. It measures about 9” x 1 3/4” x 3/4”
Thanks for having a look.
-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
