Spoons of teh Week

Posted on April 23, 2011 by Furls Business Academy | 2 Comments

This week’s spoons are pretty exciting guys. We’ve got three European Pear spoons, one Masur Birch and one Hackberry.

I think they look pretty poppin’ right now, so I’m super psyched about finishing them. I did a lot of extra work on these getting some cool shapes and working on that DARN FERNHEAD curve on that pearwood spoon and I think it payed off. Also, nearly all have some great curly figure (which will really pop once they’re finished) and the Masur Birch IS WICKED because of its burly appearance.

Apparently, this birch tree grows all over the Finnish province of Karelia where it is often infested with boring beetles. When the tree heals the damage done by said beetle, it leaves a beautiful burly, dark grain pattern that looks amazing. I made the neck on this spoon pretty perky so it’s good for getting in the tight corners of a small ice cream pint. Let’s not forget our faithful, reclaimed hackberry. I tested out some engraving techniques on this little baby spoon and it worked pretty well. You can faintly see the outline and the small “T” below the little ornament on the very end of the handle.

All of these will be finished tomorrow and I HOPE to list them for sale on Furls later this week. More pictures to come!
