You don't NEED another wooden spoon. But you might want one.
I carve spoons from a variety of woods harvested from my farm and the surrounding countryside. I mostly scavenge trees taken down by road crews or felled on my land as part of careful management. From logs bucked to length with a chainsaw, I then split billets with a wedge and sledgehammer, shape them with an axe, and then carve them using straight and curved knives.
If you would like to learn this process, get in touch to arrange a private lesson (more on these on the Learning Resources page).
All my work is finished without sanding, using just knives and skill to leave a smooth, faceted surface that will become even more beautiful with age and use. I burnish my pieces in a two step process using a porcelain burnisher and a broomcorn polisher. Both of these tools are available to order (each is $15 plus shipping), please be in touch if you would like to be on the waiting list for one or to find out more. Pieces are oiled with a mixture of beeswax and jojoba oil. Hand wash only, and re-oil occasionally, if desired, with whatever you have on hand.
