From the forest to the table, these made for some fun whittle work on a sunny sunday so I had some fun and took some pics to share with the crew.

At times I am not sure if this work is just as good as some prescribed medicine that the pharmacy has no ideas of, but I think it might be No insurance needed, just trust the wood for its a sure friend.

When you get a moment to encounter nature somehow nature always shows you simple avenues on complicated roads. So here is just a pitstop of ideas. Some new grains for knives and shapes to make good things with.

For reference of woods used please see in picutre #6 from left to right…..Butternut, Locust and Sumac.
I thank all of you for taking a peek and leaving a hello. It’s wonderful to share all of your terrific work and get inspired from it.

Enjoy your projects and remember to challenge yourself all the while smiling at your progress!

Take care,

Very handsome spoons ! Knowing they are truly made by hand, ie without using Kutzall or similar (like I did !) adds to their cachet.
