I haven’t had a lot of time for blogging lately. I have been really busy trying to get caught up with orders.

But here is a few more spoons. They are all cherry the light ones are from the sap wood.
As you can see they are finished completely with knife (no sandpaper).

This makes for a much more interesting surface and no mistaking that it was made by a human being.
And though it lacks the machine perfect straight lines,

I think this is exactly the kind of thing the world needs. Something made by a person for a person.
But then again if you need a perfect, boring, run of the mill spoon there’s a wall-mart on ever corner

Well it’s turned really cold here so I am trying to stay real close to the old woodstove.

I am working on a red oak rib back chair, fitting the back ribs.
Don’t worry about the mess on my table I seem to get along better among chaos.

Here I am fitting the sides with a block plane.

 It’s hard to beat a good knife.

Good tight fit.
