Say that title 10 times fast and good luck….lol.

More work on this smaller shape with the larger bowl. I have been enjoying this style and this is the first copy from the previous birch version. I had the smoothe non poison variety of sumac close at hand and knowing how it loves to show off when oiled with flax seed I just had to attempt it.

Hoping to get my spoons website up and running where I will be having some wooden spoons available for sale, hopefully by spring time. I have a decent selection of about 15-20 finished all in various woods and most shown on this site.

There will be some different styles of spoon work coming along as well. More kitchen/cooking friendly editions with a country style.

Hope this was something of interest to anyone curious of the craft. All handmade in tradition sloyd style, learning more as I venture ahead. There will be a spoon blog soon on some of the templates I have created that may be fun for any of my friends here to use if they want to try this work for themselves.

Thanks to everyone for taking a look and inspiring me with your work!

Like this spoon and really like the grain of the sumac. Nice spoonmanship.
