So many times I would day dream roaring up the hills of upstate NY gazing away at the mountains seeking out Silver Birch.

For me any time the forest showcases a mix of Evergreens, Oak, and Maple the highlight is always finding this wonderful species.

Whenever I see the beauty of the bark all I want to do is get my hatchet and tools put to the task of making a spoon!

This one is a little guy best for eating Soup, Cereal or Ice Cream with!

It was a very nice grain to work the knives through, and I hope this may bring forth some inspiration!

I thank you for looking and for more on this kind of work please visit our new website!

Thank you all very much and be well!

Very nice spoon. Birch is particularly well suited for contact with food as it doesn’t leave any wood taste, plus it is strong and even has some resistance to bacteria.

Love the shape and practicality of the eating spoon. I just cut some beech today with a friend to make some kuksas and eating spoons. It’s definitely helpful to see yours. About to check the website…
