A few more spoons I’m taking to the show
‘Gall’ is a small cedar burl…. it looked more like a ‘gall’ when I cut it… but it had some ‘solid’ wood inside. It came from my brother’s VA property and the bowl is maybe two inches wide.
The ‘Osage’ scoop is really kind of big at 13”. No fancy carving but the color is pretty when it catches the sunlight.
‘Lefty Righty’ is a pair of matching spoons… at least in shape and wood type (serviceberry). Maybe can be used as salad tongs…. 12” long, I think.
The ‘Spiny Lizard’ is mahogany with dried rose thorns. I had done a ‘beast’ with the spine previously but wanted to have one for the show.
The ‘Void’ is pretty useless. A couple of guys along the road were cutting down some branches and loading onto a trailer so I stopped for a piece. Spalted ficus is the wood and the hole is a limb scar… where the ‘twig’ that had protruded was rotted out. The back of the spoon has a better look so I will post a back view below.
Plum Skinny is called such because it is carved of purple plum and is about an 1/8” thick… It was actually the ‘undercut’ of another spoon that I had made previously. I had sent some sample 9” spoons to NYC and they decided they would rather have 5 1/2” spoons. So the eight (pictured below) are on their way back so I can peddle them at the art show.
-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)
