Project Information

The first spoon I can't take the blame for. Back when I posted the Spine spoon, someone else suggested it looked like a dieter's spoon… so here is a Dieter's Spoon. Mahogany, rose thorns and a big thorn off of some tropical tree. Approximately 10 1/2" x 2" x 1".

The Hula spoon was carved from cherry burl. I just circled the areas with the best grain and cut off the rest of it. Turned out looking like a Hula dancer to me. Arms flowing, hip jutted out and the skirt has a live edge bottom. The bowl is cantilevered and is delicately held on by a small section. It measures approx. 7 1/2" x 2" x 1".

The 'Night Watchman' spoon is from a piece of bi-color maple and the bowl is stained dark to represent the night sky. I actually cut this piece wrong. It was meant to just have the moon in the sapwood but, well… you know. It measures about 9" x 1 3/4" x 3/4"

Thanks for having a look.

I looked at the thread title several times and assumed you'd made a spoon for a German guy named Dieter.

I love me some spoontaneous. Keeps getting better. I've been trying to pitch to the fiance' how "kitchen remodel" includes spoontaneous in addition to Wolf and Sub-Zero; standard equipment in my mind. Wish me luck:)

Thank y'all for the comments. I enjoy making the spoons.

Al, if you can afford Sub-Zero and Wolf… you can afford me. Ha! That is some serious (and expensive) cooking gear. My sister just remodeled her kitchen (although modestly) and hung one of my spoons in there ('Bongo') and a lady up north has the 'Breast-Feeder' spoon (pewter) hanging in her kitchen in some sort of frame.

Debbie, that is a cool logo. I am planning on some more 'moon spoons'. Once I can buy some dye I want to make a blue moon. And my first idea for a moon spoon was to use ebony or African blackwood (with some sapwood) and use silver for the stars. I just have to wait for the right piece of wood to show up.

Thanks again…......

Spoon, my fiance' is the chef; I know how to open the fridge but that's the extent of my ability. I'm really good at admiring spoons, too:)

The Nightwatchman works really well with that Maple. I wonder if you'll get any 'fetish' interest with the Dieter's Spoon. Your work is always a pleasure to see for its novelty, humour and quality.

I so want that Dieter's spoon, I have honey locust thorns I want to use in a project. You have inspired me to look through my wood stock for any shape that resembles a spoon and I have rough cut 4 now. I blame you for another growing stack of started projects.. LOL thanks ~ e
