People need to cook. I help with that.
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 or sign up for one of my multi-day workshops (information on the Workshops/Lessons 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. 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.
