Topic tags/keywords: treenware

I don’t see much about treenware on the forum. Does anyone do treenware? I’m trying to come up with some quick and easy gift projects for this holiday season and I was thinking that might be a good option. I’ve googled it and most of what I come up with is books to buy or treenware to buy. Not much of the how to stuff I expected.

I realize it’s mostly compound sawing, sanding and decorative carving. But was hoping I’d find a free video or at least a good article on the how to’s so I don’t waste to much wood discovering how to do it on my own. I can buy the books, but would rather save my money for wood if I can.

Thanks for any help.

Treenware is handcrafted wooden articles such as spoons, bowls, and other kitchen utensils. It’s pretty basic stuff. I was looking to see if anyone does this type of work. They make good gifts.

Treenware comes and goes. Used to be every vendor at every craft show had it and it was a sure fire way to make a nice buck. Now it’s not so easy to find. But it’s a good way to learn some basic cuts and shaping. I was interested in finding patterns to use as go bys so I could make some quick gifts for the holiday. I did not want to reinvent the wheel. I’ll probably trace shapes from my kitchen stuff and shape as I go.

TopE5 does your wife still do shows? If so, what has she changed to selling?

Hmm. A couple years ago I carved a spoon from a small cedar root that my son found along the Frio river. I’ll have to post a picture.
