I have had request for small hand crosses at a couple show so I made some stock for the first show of November on Saturday. Seven are made from red box elder and seven are made from olive wood. they are 3/8 ” thick and 3” long and finished with Danish oil and buffed waxed so they feel real good.

The spoon is 12” long and 2” wide and is an exact replacement for the one my wife sat on the hot burner and burned 2 grooves into. It is made from cherry and finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed also. She said it was her favorite wood spoon and needed to be replaced!! So being the good doobie that I am. I got right on it!

Cheers, Jim

Those crosses of Olive Wood must have really smelled nat as you were making them!

Love the shape of that spoon. No wonder it was her favorite!

Those are very nice and stylized crosses. The olive wood is most appropriate.
I thought you were going to say your wife sat on the spoon and broke it, I was holding my breath until you wrote, she sat it on the burner.
It is a good spoon. I can tell by the shape of the end. She can really stir things up!

Great choice of wood for the crosses Jim. The two tone looks super. Perfect design of spoon, my wife has a similar type also.

Thanks for sharing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Perfect items for a show Jim. If the vampires are hanging around you’ll sell out in minutes 8^)
The spoon looks “perfect”. Do you do the handle on a lathe?

Thanks Bruce. I did turn the handle on the lathe and carved the business end!
