Tendril is carved from Elm burl… the idea being one of a tendril wrapping around upon itself. 5-6 inches maybe.

Twisty is one of those saplings that you find in the woods where a vine has grown around it. This one was short so became a spoon instead of a cane. Probably 13 inches long. Not sure of the wood… maybe hackberry.. but it was really hard.

UpHeld is kind of embarrassing in the face. I had picked up a bone left behind by the dogs in the yard. It was a bit too thin…. and my carving was goofy that day… so I am going to remake the face when I get to it. Maybe out of polymer clay… but the idea was solid. 9 inches, I think.

The ladle looking spoon was for an author friend of mine in MN. She lets me design the covers for her books, which I really enjoy. She had a sort of spiritual experience beneath this plum tree that grew on her property. She sent me a couple of pieces after the tree expired and I sent this back to her. I call it Mari’s spoon. About 13 inches or so.

The last is just a quick spoon from sycamore. 8-9 inches.

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

I would like to see a book of your carvings. They fascinate me. Thanks for the look!

Beautiful carvings! And great wood selection. I love burl elm and wish I had more of it. I’ve been making tea candle holders from some small pieces on the edge. I may have to try a spoon and salad fork set from some pieces that are too narrow for tea candle bases.
