Hello friends, I surely hope you all had great holidays!

There are so many new things I am currently learning regarding green woodwork with spoons, traditional woodworking crafts, etc.

But…this is a hobby for me so I will take these projects on when time provides and continue to enjoy the learning!

I look forward to sharing more with you.

Thanks for taking a peek at this new spoon, be well friends!

Joe

First of many, I hope. Are you familiar with the Country Workshops??

Very nice. I am curious about what type of wood it is.

Thank you all! Monte, Spoontaneous, RichCMD, Papa, Andy, Don W. I really appreciate hearing from you. All of your work and blogs are so inspiring to me.

Spoontaneous: Yes sir, I am familiar with Country Workshops. Drew Langsner is a great inspiration for my woodworking. Heck of a nice guy to boot, and provides great tools for all of us hand tool people.

RichCMD: I am as curious as you…hahahaha. I actually am not sure of this timber and I usually always am. Not this time..lol. Thanks for the comment.

Fine looking spoon Joe. Glad to see you haven’t lost the knack.

p.s. – I knew it was you as soon as I saw the picture. You’re getting a “look”.

Joe ~ I had been getting the Country Workshops’ newsletter for the last couple of years…. and just never get around to reading the thing. But I bumped into online that he is collecting ‘spreaders’ or butter knives, which I had never made one of those.

So yesterday I shipped my first one ever out to him for his collection. I think he has over 100 of them.

I included a note and told him that I have to (cheat) and use rotary tools. If I had to rely on my skills with hand tools…. nothing would ever get made.

Hey that’s great Spoontaneous ! No matter how you make something it’s the spirit of it. Your ideas are really creative and talented so I am sure Drew will love it! That is a gentleman that has done a ton of green woodworking from spoons, bowls, as well as log cabins. From what I know he has studied with some of the real masters of the various handicrafts from around the world.

Who knows…at some point you may even have a go at making one by hand! Once you start you will be hooked and you have the talents within yourself to do it!

Either way, keep creating and having fun with it, all the best and great to hear from you!

Cheers,

Joe
