Made a spoon display today, I am preparing for a pitch, to start selling my work in shops around here.

I used a heavy piece of Welsh oak.

The bracket on the back is retractable and made out of Welsh cherry with a bit of bark left on.

Tea spoons

The spoons are about 130mm long, I just looked at a regular metal tea spoon and followed the outline shape; things change when you carve them out of wood an unspoken rule I am happy to follow, then you end up with these little cuties.

Soup spoons

October 18, 2015

astriddegroot

Very happy with this design, it holds the soup well and it provides a good hand- mouth action.

And I like the look of it.

Two of them are made from alder the other 5 are holly from my mum and dad’s garden.

Took it out on a walk and sat down for 2 hours at a beautiful spot between Aber Castell and Trefin looking out over the sea, to do some finnish cuts and sanding. Later at home I treated it with Tung oil.
