  1. Fowl Play

    Hi folks ~ A couple of more spoons came about. I call the first one 'Fowl Play'. Even though this is a rare bird (one of a kind actually), pretty much any ornithologist could identify this as a Black-footed, BB eyed Spooner. I saw these metal bird feet for sale on Etsy and had been wanting to...
  2. The 'old' and the new.

    Back in October while visiting my brother on his mountaintop property in VA I found this wooden spoon relic. Since this particular area is not known for its archaeological finds I felt lucky to come away with this specimen. Apparently, this 'Cycladic' spoon is from the latter part of the...
  3. Having a blast.

    I've been getting ready for my first Art Festival here in a couple of weeks. I got juried in under an emerging artist program… and so all of the fees were paid for me and they supply the canopy. Meanwhile, a restaurant owner in NYC asked me for 40 spoons… so I am spending some time at the shop...
  4. Short stack of spoons

    I usually like to gather up several spoons before making a post… but my wife and I will be traveling overseas (Philippines) for the next couple of weeks… so I thought I would go ahead and tie up the loose ends. The first spoon showing I call 'Blanco' for obvious reasons. A lady from Tennessee...
  5. sum mor spunes

    A wonderful lady from Texas purchased one of my simpler spoons for $30. She then proceeded to send me two boxes of wood cut on her property without allowing me to reimburse her for the postage. She then followed it up with an even larger box. I promised her I will get in the 'last word'.... and...
  6. Another batch

    A few more spoons I'm taking to the show 'Gall' is a small cedar burl…. it looked more like a 'gall' when I cut it… but it had some 'solid' wood inside. It came from my brother's VA property and the bowl is maybe two inches wide. The 'Osage' scoop is really kind of big at 13". No fancy carving...
  7. It's Aliiive! Not the snake... the website.

    yeah…. so, I FINALLY got a website up and running. Not totally complete, but a good enough portion as to give some folks a basic idea of what I'm into. If you happen to check it out, please let me know if you run into dead or erroneous links. The 'links' page and a couple of others…. I am just...
  8. Buy one spoon, get 150 for free.

    Well….. that was how I planned to 'sell' this one. With a built in USB memory stick I was going to load up digital copies of 150 of my spoons. That was the plan anyway. It did not quite work out like that due to some major ineptitude from the maker. Yeah… it kind of looks good from a distance...
  9. Knot exactly functional.

    'Square Knot' is carved from a thin piece of Lilac. The square knot was one of the first knots I learned to tie in the Boy Scouts and one of the few I remember how to tie, "Left over right, right over left". I didn't intend to 'free' the knot part…. but by the time I got the 'strings' anywhere...
  10. Not another snake spoon!?

    'Slither' is carved from a piece of ebony wood and inlaid with silver. This is the third snake spoon thus far…. and truthfully, I had no immediate plans to make another snake spoon. It was actually my wife's fault. About 6:00 one morning we were having coffee and out of nowhere she says, "I...
  11. A few more spoons...

    I can't make it to the 'shop' (which is outside) this weekend due to the Isaac storm bringing in a lot of rain and wind… so I thought I'd go ahead and post what I have made up so far. The 'Worm' spoon is carved in wild apple…. and I'm guessing it is about 9" long. The spoon with the bark is...
  12. Tyto the owl girl.

    Long post… so if you only have time for the Reader's Digest version, it goes like this…. "I made some stuff and here are the photos." Now for the 'unabridged' version…. I named the owl girl sculpture 'Tyto' for the Barn Owl species (Tytoninae). In researching owls, I discovered that they fit...
  13. Marketplace Classifieds
    I upgraded to a SawStop a few months ago and need to get rid of my General table saw. It's a great saw for the cost and I thought I'd let my fellow LJs have first shot at it before I post on on EBay or craigslist. It went for about $1200 new when I bought it 4 years ago. It's only been used on...
  14. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Already LJs, I got some Christmas cash that I am looking to spend on improving my dust collection in my shop. Currently I have a Shop Vac. I am looking at adding a dust collector or an air filtration system. Since I'm looking to spend about $330 - $400 I don't know which would be more...
  15. Hand Tools
    I found this on the street the other day and I am not sure what it is: It basically looks like a ball-point pen but made entirely of metal. The only markings on it say "Metal removal division" and "Federal-Mogul". I have been using it for making center holes for drilling and for marking...
  16. Wood & Lumber
    We just cleared an area near my house for a picnic pavilion and I had to take down a large cherry tree. It has a diameter of roughly 24" and I would love to saw it into 3" slabs, bookmatch the center slabs and build a large table for the pavilion. The trouble is that while we all know what...
