Some Spoons For Sale

IMG_6473

As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve been carving some spoons from crooks.  Here are seven of them, and I’m offering them for sale.  I’ll provide photos and a brief description of each one below, but there are some things they all have in common.  Each of them is carved from a crook, and the grain flows through the handle and the bowl of the spoon. These are all serving/cooking spoons of one form or another, and they are ready to use. I’ve treated all of them with food grade flax seed oil, and experience has shown that spoons like these hold up very well over years of use.  Six of the seven are carved from Pennsylvania black cherry, the other sycamore.  I’ve carved all of them, start to finish, with axe and knife — no sandpaper.

If you’d like to purchase one, let me know with a comment below — or an email at dandkfish@gmail.com if that doesn’t work.  You can pay through Paypal or by sending a check in the mail.  If Paypal is your preference, I’ll send an invoice to your email through Paypal. As usual, I’ll keep things simple and include shipping within the U.S. in the price listed. For shipping outside of the U.S., there will be an additional charge, and we’ll figure that out later.

#1: A cherry serving spoon/ladle with a nice wide bowl.  The translucence of cherry sapwood (as opposed to the heartwood streak along the middle of the underside) is evident in the left photo.  It is very durable and strong.  11 3/4″ x 3 3/8″  —  $85 includes shipping.  SOLD

#2: This cherry spoon has an octagonal handle that sweeps away from the bowl to the right, following the curve of the grain.  Tough for lefties.  9 1/4″ x 2″ — $55 includes shipping.  SOLD

#3: If you’re like me, and don’t like too much sauce in your baked beans, then this is the spoon for you.  Striking heartwood running through this cherry spoon.  8 1/2″ x 3″ — $70 includes shipping.  SOLD

#5:  This cherry server/ladle has narrower, deeper bowl as well as some different design details and texture.  10″ x 2 1/8″ — $75 includes shipping. SOLD

#6: I went with the flow of this wonky cherry crook.  I love the feel of it in the hand — very solid with a deep, wide bowl. 9 3/4″ x 3″ — $80 includes shipping.  SOLD

#7:  And finally, a sycamore ladle.  It takes an extreme and rare bend in a crook to have the grain run through a ladle like this (It came from the crook in the bottom photo).  I love the contrast between the heartwood and the sapwood and the dark streak between them.  10″ x 2 1/2″ —  $90 includes shipping.  SOLD

It takes a radical crook like this one to have the grain run true through the bottom of a deep soup ladle. This one is in sycamore.

    Just in case you were wondering why the post appeared with the “1185” title in your inbox — it was due to my forgetting to title the post at all before publishing! I’ve fixed it now.

      I’m sorry, Mark, but that is already sold. In fact they have all sold now. I have more underway, though, so I’ll post more in the future. I really appreciate your interest and that of all who purchased the spoons. Thanks all.
