Anyone who knows me knows I love carving spatulas. I love to sauté.

Here are some recent ones.

Batch of spoons

October 11, 2012 Leave a comment

Here is another batch of summer spoons. Some got away early before I could snap pics. The top is Service berry and has a chipped carved handle. The right is cherry and has a deep bowl for serving soup or stew. On the left is buckthorn and finally the bottom spoon is again cherry. It fancies a textured bowl and flower carvings on the handle. Enjoy.

I am a much better carver then blog steward. I see my last post was in May. Rest assured I have not stopped carving. I spent a week this summer trenching (teaching) at the Lake Superior Traditional Ways Gathering. This year I brought a couple of shaving horses and taught my tulip salad tongs. About 10 people were successful from start to finish. I had crab apple and ash blanks. We used a draw knife to rough out the shapes and then a spokeshave and knives to create the finishedy product. I was happy with the results. He are a few pics. I Carved a ball in cage on one of them. I sure respect that now as I cut myself twice on that little bugger.
