Those following our Manzanita projects – we got 73 burls in on top of the supply we already had on hand. Some of them were odd shapes that did not lend themselves to bowl or vessel turnings. My father decided to work on a few of them that seemed like good candidates for spoons. This is the first three – by Stanley D. Saperstein

Fun stuff! I like to work with Manzanita root & burl, as the colors and grain are so unique.

Very cool and pretty spoons! Love the irregular and interesting shapes and the stunning colors on wood make them attractive.
