An enjoyable duo of fine woods from my forest. Holly and plum made for wonderful carving this past weekend, making a smaller strong pair of spoons for anyone to enjoy!

Important message!
I am in the process of designing a spoon making/woodcrafting site where you can enjoy all of this work, purchase hand made spoons, read blog updates, stories, see some vintage hand tools, videos, and any other crazy thing I might come up with!

I hope you may all visit and enjoy it! More to come!

Thank you for taking a moment and having a look.

Great shaves ahead!

Tin cups and spoons. I can’t wait for the plates. Your spoons are great and I never thought I’d say that about a spoon.
