Hey everyone I am still putting more of these out and have hopes of selling a few in the upcoming months!

These pair here are Smooth Sumac (not the itchy and Sycamore.

I am in the middle of a computer crash so my old Macintosh 2000 rig is up and slow as a, so I may not get too much mileage on here as the new computer is due next month.

I thank you all for enjoying this work and I certainly am inspired by all of yours.

Getting plans together for something new to tinker with in the shop besides these spoons, so I hope to have more next month.

Take care gang and hopefully I will still be able to share some with my older mac/computer setup.

Thanks for taking a look!

These look really nice Joe, the best yet. If you are selling stuff and you like to make small items, I suggest you explore the world of wooden combs for the ladies. They aren’t the easiest thing to make, but they are great to use because they don’t generate any static electricity, something that women like. A wonderful selling point. Just a thought.

My hat is off to you sir and I agree with Mike, they are your best yet. I love their form and they ooze beauty. Are these ones sanded a little to smooth them out a bit?

Thanks everyone for the comments. Hey Andy hope all is well there, these are in their first sanded oiled stage. I then wet them a little to raise the grain then follow up again to totally smooth them over finishing with the oil. But some of these styles many make have bowl sanded only with a carved handle surface, although I am liking the entire piece sanded for my preference. Each stage I learn a little more! Thanks for looking in everyone.

Looking good Joe. Someone who is looking for quality work will snatch those up. I hope the endeavor is profitable for you.
