Welcome to my new site.  It is a WordPress.com. blog.  It allowed me to import my Blogspot and will be more powerful in the future.

I will be posting carving updates from here and expanding the site.

>2011 17 and 18 are Crab Apple Tulip Salad Tongs.

Another staple carving that just never gets old. At the spoon gathering I saw my first clones. Someone had carved a set just like mine. I was pleased that someone liked them enough to emulate. Ok maybe that is a bit vain since they naturally want to be tulips, but I take the little bit of pleasure anyway.
The ones with the balls on the end are 17 just for the record; which this blog is.

>2011 13 – Spatula in Mulberry – I love carving spatulas more then any other spoon variety. This one has a simple chipped carved pattern on the handle.

>Here are 3 Buckthorn eating spoons I carved at the gathering in Milan, MN.

2011 14 – My new favorite and my personal eating spoon. Carved like a small spatula it handles food effortlessly. I highly suggest carving one in this style. I added a small chip carved detail to complete the look.

2011 15 – Another Buckthorn spoon with more brown then orange. A bit of random design gives it more pizazz then it probably deserves, but I like it.

2011 16 – Small spatula in Buckthorn The knot in the handle called out for a sun and I superimposed a moon along side.

>Finally, some new pictures of my carvings. I am doing a art showing in July and working to get my inventory organized and labeled.

2011 10 – Boxelder paster fork. Too short, but turned out pretty cool anyhow.

2011 11 – Boxelder spatula. The knot was removed in the middle and makes a great sun burst.

2011 12 – Walnut coffee scoop. Carved with a turtle on the handle just because I like too.
