Hackberry "T" Time

Posted on April 25, 2011 by Furls Business Academy | 3 Comments

Oh yes, the sweet comfort of domestic hardwoods. This little guy was rescued from an enormous hackberry log that was felled on a construction site a couple months ago.

He’s been repurposed as a teeny but resilient workhorse; despite his small stature and gentile appearance he can scoop the toughest of grains and most frozen ice cream (imagine the love child of a Mini Cooper and a Ford F-350).

I had a lot of fun carving this guy. Since he’s so small it only took a little while and with the extra time I added a little tail ornament and some engraving on the top. Why a “T” I don’t know, but if you’ve recently had a baby named Terrence, this spoon has his name on it (GET IT?>?>?).

I don’t know if I’ll put this spoon up for sale, since he has a few very light splits near the bowl, but they are really only aesthetic (no structural damage, pu-lease). Enjoy!

It’s really easy to scttih them together. You just lay them face side together and then scttih. Sometimes you do have to shift a little bit, but no one will notice.That is the 5 round Granny Square, I just kept going, lol.

I have all different types of crcohet hooks. I find the crystal expressions hooks work best for me. I made handles out of sculpey oven back clay for my thin metal hooks though to make them easier to hold and work with.

How often I wind up reading dull and polory written online commentary. This article was a refreshing change from all that. You make great points and present them in an interesting way. It’s just smashing.
