    Bowl width: 4.6cm

    Apple wood eating spoon with eagle eye handle

    Apple wood eagle eye spoon #2

    Length: 16cm (6 1/4 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 6.5cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This is just the second spoon I’ve carved from the limb of a big old (100 years+) apple tree that broke off in the autumn storms even though it’s still a bit too wet to carve. Sorry but the first one sold before it even got on the website. When the wood is knotty it’s cool if you can make the knots into features. This one has a knot in the handle that looks like the eye of an eagle, so folks said, so I carved the handle to look a little like an eagle’s beak whilst still being comfortable to hold (so if it doesn’t look really beaky to you that’s cos it’s for using and not just looking at). Anyway here you go there’s a close up in the product details gallery showing the eagle like features the right way round. I’m leaving the rest of the apple to mellow and will be using it in the spring.

    Blackthorn eating spoon 20

    Spalted blackthorn eating spoon #20

    Length: 18cm (7 inches)
    Bowl width: 5cm
    Bowl length: 6.5cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This big bold spalted blackthorn spoon eating has a symmertic bowl making suitable for left or right handers. It’s an exceptionally beautiful piece of blackthorn heartwoodwith dark patterns of fungal growth. However the wood is sound and the spalting has gone just far enouh for colour but not enough to soften the wood at all. The handle profile is narrower where you hold and wider at the end, that way it sits vewry sweetly in the hand.

    Blackthorn is prunus family like plum and damson and shares the same exceptional colours. It usually grows as a prickly shrub on scrub land and in hedges and it’s rare to get large enough pieces to carve like this entirely from the heartwood. This was from Llangrannog in west Wales where I found it in a woodland having been cut down as much as a year earlier.

    Blackthorn dolphin spoon #1

    Blackthorn dolphin eating spoon #1

    Length: 19cm (7 1/2 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 7cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This elegant blackthorn spoon has plenty of gorgeous heartwood in the depths of the bowl and striking colour on the back of the handle. It does have a little bit of softer wood in the heartwood on the back of the bowl but I think it’s sound will last for a good long time. It’s a bit cheaper than it would otherwise be. I decided it deserved to go on sale as it’s a bit different to the others here and someone might just fall in love with it.  The long narrow form makes it equally suitable as a small serving spoon or a generous eating spoon.

    Obviously not for eating dolphins, it’s just that the profile is like some of the old welsh dolphin spoons with a distinctive prominent hump on the top of the neck.

    Blackthorn eating spoon #2

    Blackthorn eating spoon #2

    Length: 15cm
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 5.6cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    This pretty little blackthorn spoon has a different shaped handle than I usually make, probably dictated by the knarly piece of balckthorn it was carved from. It’s got a small amount of softer wood in the bowl – that pale line through the dark heartwood – that’s why is a little bit cheaper than other spoons here. In my judgement this wont be a problem and there’s years of good sue to be had from it. Blackthorn is tough stuff.

    Bowl width: 5cm
    Bowl length: 5.6cm

    This blackthorn eating spoon was made from a twisted radial section of wood and has a lot sharper crook than the other spoons here. I’ve included side views to try and show this but I do find it’s trick to capture. Anyway it’s got a beautiful ripple in the handle and log strong grain through the bowl. It could be a small serving spoon or it could become your favorite eating spoon if you like a lot of crook.

    This is a wonderfully proportioned spoon and the side profile is particularly fine, you can’t see it in the photo but you’ll just have to believe me. It’s a spoon I carver some time ago and acted as the template for many that followed. The wood is very hard and silky smooth, it’s going to be a joy to eat with.
