A gift for Christmas. Spoon is a Shirley Adler design carved from birch, finished with linseed oil and gloss lacquer. Box more 6mm okume scrap, linseed oil and spray shellac. Inspiration for box lid incised carving adapted from Beychevelle Vineyards – always liked their design.

Very nice! I like the padding in the box, that’s a nice touch.

What a great presentation! Love the wood curls. Your box and incised carving make the whole gift really special. Good job! If it is okay, I may borrow that ‘spoon in a box’ idea.

I also love your padding, it gives it a real craftsmen feel to it and looks very professional.

Another amazing piece. Like the use of shavings for packing.

Clung, just wanted you to know, for the record, I’ve no intention of ‘stealing’ your design and producing spoons in boxes with shavings. I waited for a reply from you granting permission, and probably should have PM’d you instead of showing my excitement publicly. This is your product, and the design is safe from me, at least! Just wanted you to know that. It’s a Great idea, very classy, and I hope you manage to sell many dozens of them, if that is your intent.

Barbs – my most sincerest apology! I somehow missed the part that you were waiting for my permission to use the idea of a box with shavings – but now that I reread your post I see my mistake. It’s very considerate for you to ask, and by all means, if it’s something you can use, do so! I have absolutely no intention of trying to sell them! I’m sorry my lack of response caused you any concern! Best of luck on your projects and thanks for commenting.
