Spoons, Spoons, Spoons

10 small spoons in cherry, maple, and walnut.

I just made some spoons for Boston General Store. (http://boston-general-store.myshopify.com) The seemingly endless supply of wild cherry I have dried out faster than I could carve it so I had to look elsewhere to finish the order. I found some spalted maple with just the right amount of spalting and some rather large honeysuckle bushes.

Honeysuckle

I had an easy time finding the honeysuckle, it has all but taken over the floor of the woods. Finding a diameter to fit my needs was a bit tricky though and some of the wood I cut had some tricky grain to contend with as well as the signature hollow pith. All and all, the spoons turned out great and I will be revisiting honeysuckle for spoons.

  1. I love hand made wooded spoons – I’ve tried turning one or two and they are painful and time consuming (you never get the money of the time spent making them)…. unless they are hand carved! – then they do fetch a penny or two! gorgeous hand carved – (nice Wild Cherry and Maple)!
