Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall… followed by a brutal winter.

‘Humpty’ is carved from Dawn redwood with broken eggshell and stains.

‘Day of the Dead’ is from that Horse chestnut, ball bearings for eyeballs and a Sharpie pen.

‘Ms Mac’ is Macadamia nut wood. I almost named it ‘Void Where Prohibited’.

A couple of ‘duds’. The spalted maple spoon broke several times in my hands while trying to shape it. (Super Glue wears a cape.) The comet looking spoon is Bay laurel that a guy from work brought in. It was about 8” thick and some guy had cut it down with a one inch drill bit. It had some rot to it, which is that lighter color.

Thanks for having a look.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

When hand worked art meets wood, I am always amazed. Yours are top tier. The most neat part is that I wouldn’t have figured out what you were making if I would have seen it half way through.

Excellent. Particularly like ‘Day of the Dead’ The ribbing really sets it off.

You have opened my eyes to what it means to make a spoon. Very imaginative! “Superglue wears a cape” – Funny!!

These are really wild spoons but I like them. They’re beautiful.

Great wood carving. Now I know what to do with that jar of ball bearings I inherited. Thanks for sharing!

You rock. I love seeing your creativity.
Interesting note… It has always been portrayed that Humpty Dumpty was an egg, but the limerick never said he was an egg!
Thanks for posting.
