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!
