Made this short handled serving/cooking paddle last week. I didn't really like it as the proportions felt funny. Then I saw a post from @rustedpulchritude and they had a similar one. If it's good enough for those amazing makers it's good enough for me 😁
I started making chopsticks as part of #spoonfest2018 as an exercise in using different knife cut techniques under the awesome instruction of @jarrod__dahl but with all the amazing classes and gathering and food and everything else there I never finished them. So I decided to start afresh and make a set. They are a great alternative to a fork when a spoon doesn't quite work (try eating a leafy salad with a spoon..!) I think I will make a travel size set to take on my work travels to compliment the my go to pocket spoon.
(Read in David Attenborough voice) 'here, we have the native spoonie spoonus, also known as cawl spoon. It lays in it's natural habitat, a thick lentil and carrot soup, waiting to be picked up and raised to mouth!
I carved this bowl/cup (loathe to actually call it a kuksa or kasa I think) about 4 months ago with only axe, knife and hook knife. It was such a labour and I really didn't like it to begin with but it has been sat in my carving box for a while and every now and then I fine tuned it some more and the little fella has grown on me. So much so, last night I enjoyed a (small) beer out if it. I an very partial to it now.
Settling down to make my first spoon of the year but before I start with the knife work it's dinner time. Using a hooked ladle I made a couple of months ago but didn't do anything with. Figured I would put her to work.
Back on it after a bit of a work enforced break. Christmas is coming up and who doesn't like a kitchen utensil as a gift?! Paddle style serving/cooking spoon. Right, who is up for an Xmas spoon exchange?
Picked up this little gem from @jmullaney33 at the Derbyshire Woodland Festival today. I know there is a constant debate about pricing of craft product but his spoons are a bargain at twice the price. I can't wait to make some great food with it.
