Recently I had my computer’s motherboard go south on me and lost a bit of data. I had saved some of my files on my wife’s computer but the more recent ones were lost, including photos of some of my more recent spoons. I had uploaded some of them onto etsy and was able to retrieve them… so I am posting here to sort of ‘archive’ them.
I may have posted a couple of these back during the ‘spoon collaboration, so if it looks familiar, it probably is.
Charlie brown is carved in maple and I think he is about 5 or 6 inches tall.
The second spoon I named Tree Skin (I guess the bark is a sort of skin to the tree) and it is carved in star fruit wood. You know, those weird looking fruit things that don’t really taste all that good, but have a cool star shape when you slice them sideways. Maybe 8 inches long and I sealed it with an acrylic floor finish. ha!
The Spiral spoon is spalted beech. I had to shore up some of the punk wood…. less than 5 inches long.
The red spoon is from a very rare wood. I’m told that only the tribal chiefs are allowed to harvest this wood… and the natives call this wood em-dee-ef. Experiment gone bad. 10 inches I guess.
Pebbles spoon is carved from the spalted beech. Really kind of fragile. maybe 4 inches long.
Frond is not really wood, but a palm frond. I was going to carve a mask but I remembered I was supposed to be a spoon carver. The back of the spoon has a hard casing that you would be hard pressed to break over you knee. Maybe 10 inches.
I’m going to upload another batch so please be tolerant of me. Thanks for taking a look.
-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
