Hey look…...more spoons….lmao!

Well I am learning more each session, and each attempt brings more light to the subject. Of course like anything you have good days and some that need additional work….lol.

Here are some newbies in some new timbers that I am adding to my good spoons pile. My good pile are spoons I would feel good about selling or giving as gifts.

From left to right looking at pic 3 the list goes: 2 Sassafras, 1 Paper Birch, 1 Gray Birch

All work performed in traditional sloyd craft style as best as I am able thus far.

I have one blank of Holly split as I write this…..so I hope to share some of that timber next go around!

When time permits I am getting new project plans together for another adventure in my exercises in artisanship blog. More to come on that avenue of ideas.

Thank you all for looking in and enjoying this work. Your talents always inspire me as well as hearing your ideas and support!

Thanks gang, have a great night!

Joe

Thank you very much friends for taking a look. Hi Kiefer thanks for the question I hope all is well. In this particular batch all timbers carved very nice. But if I had to pick the best woods of the lot of timbers I have used so far it would be Maple, Black Cherry and Paper or Gray Birch.

Joe, no matter the part of the day they hit the wire, I stop to read your entries. They’re always able to take me to the trees, and I love that. Thanks!
