Spoons

dscn0098I haven’t posted in a while but I’ve been busy. I took a three week spoon carving class and here is a picture of everyone’s work after the third week’s class. My three include the the half finished one with the braided handle and the two to the left of it. None of my spoons is actually finished. They need sanding and finishing.

If you’ve ever done this, you know it takes a toll on your thumbs and hands. And of course, sharp tools make it so much more enjoyable. It was truly fun to do and I’m still working on the braided handle and heart top. The teachers were a couple from Maple Wing Gallery in Bellows Falls, VT, Erin and Hillaire. They brought wood and tools to share and lots of encouragement. And you can see that there were some pretty creative folks in the class.
