Spoons for Sale

There’s still a few unique hand carved spoons available for sale. The next batch will go online in early December. Those below are just a taster, for the full selection see spoons for sale.

  • lavascoops tablespoon sized coffee scoop

    Lavascoop – alder and milk paint tablespoon scoop

    Length: 9cm (3 1/2 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 4.5cm
    Capacity: 1 tablespoon (approx)
    Finish: milk paint and hemp seed oil

    A alder scoop that’s like a mini kuksa. It sits slightly laid back on its base and the bottom of the handle. It’s equally at home living in your coffe caddy or displayed on a kitchen shelf.

    The measure if pretty close to a table spoon. It’s a wee thing but just big enough for a medicinal nip of whisky if you should choose.

    I don’t recommend using for hot drinks – it might be fine but I’ve not done extensive testing and too many expresso may become a problem.

    Please note the blue and white version is called seascoop and you’ll find that elsewhere on this website.

    £30.00
  • Lavaspoon eater sycamore and milk paint

    Lavaspoon – sycamore and milk paint eating spoon

    Length: 16 – 17cm (6 1/4 – 6 3/4 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 6cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    A sycamore eating spoon with my special red and black milk paint finish, folks at Spoonfest called them lavaspoons and the name has stuck. This is a standard item, I’m not posting separate pictures of each one. The length varies slightly but there is very little to choose between them. All the same and each different as Barn would say.

    If you really fancy a particular one then make a note in the order notes in the checkout. Just refer to the image that shows it and the spoon you fancy. If it’s the image with all 12 spoons then count down from the top, you’d say something like “the 12 spoon image, number 4” which would be the 4th down. If it’s still available I’ll send you that one otherwise I’ll pic the one that looks the nearest. But in all truth folks grab ’em while you can they’re hot and each one is a lovely little sculpure in wood.

    The milk paint is applied thickly and sanded back to reveal the raised points on the facets. The final rub down is with 0000 wire wool and gives a super smooth finish that is just lovely to hold.

  • seascoop alder and milk paint tablespoon scoop

    Seascoop – alder and milk paint tablespoon scoop

    Length: 9cm (3 1/2 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 4.5cm
    Capacity: 1 tablespoon (approx)
    Finish: milk paint and hemp seed oil

    A alder scoop that’s like a mini kuksa. It sits slightly laid back on its base and the bottom of the handle. It’s equally at home living in your coffe caddy or displayed on a kitchen shelf.

    The measure if pretty close to a table spoon. It’s a wee thing but just big enough for a medicinal nip of whisky if you should choose.

    I don’t recommend using for hot drinks – it might be fine but I’ve not done extensive testing and too many expresso may become a problem.

    This blue and white version is a companion to the seaspoon and insired by ripples on the beach and in the sea at Llangrannog in Cardigan Bay.

    £30.00
  • Seaspoon sycamore and milk paint eating spoon

    Seaspoon – sycamore and milk paint eating spoon

    Length: 16.5cm (6 1/2 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 6cm
    Finish: milk paint and hemp seed oil

    A sycamore eating spoon with my ewer blue and white finish inspired by ripples on the sea (specifically the beaches at Llangrannog in Cardigan Bay). Hence the name, seaspoon – it’s not a teaspoon, it’s a seaspoon.

    The top surface of the handle is slightly hollowed and those little ripples are a tempting titillation for your thumb to explore.

    These are carved to a pretty consistent size and shape so you are buying a generic seaspoon eating spoon and not a particular one. They’re pretty hard to tell apart in truth unless you’re got 2 side by side. All the same but each different.

Chair Making

I am designing and making some new chairs at present, a solid elm seat Welsh stick chair and a modified frame side chair that can have an upholstered seat. I also make more traditional forms of ladderback, spindleback and lathback chairs with seats from rush, danish cord or more unusually willow basketwork.
