These spatulas and spoon were all made with green wood that I purchased from a firewood supplier. Picture #1 is of all I have carved to date. Picture #2 is a small apple wood spatula turned on my lathe. Picture #3 is two cherry spatulas split, axed, knifed while still green. Picture #4 is two turned cherry spatulas. Picture #5 is my first spoon made, very rough looking, alot more difficult than I anticipated. Also a butter knife, both from cherry. Picture #6 all together again with paper (8” x 11”) for size comparison.

Nice work. You did a GREAT job on the very first spoon you made. I also like the butter knife. Good work.

I’ve tried to carve spoons before, with no luck. Yours turned out great.

Nice folk art pieces! I still cook outside whenever I can, and wooden tools are the greatest…!

Great carvings.
