Spoons for Hunger is Back!

I was out working on a maple tree yesterday and saw so many lovely spoon blanks in it that I thought it was about time to start up the Spoons for Hunger project again.
 For those who don't know, here's how it works. I use my nervous energy to make spoons and then I put them up on the blog for sale and if you are interested, you can email me.
 I put the names in a hat after a couple of days and pick a winner. Then you get a spoon and I sent the proceeds to aid hunger relief. I'm looking forward to a long winter by the fire kicking out spoons!

 This monster cherry ladle is $210. I have more to come that are smaller and a bit less expensive, so stay tuned. Thanks for joining in and please let me know if you have a favorite hunger relief organization.

Great to see the Spoons for Hunger project up and running again mate. Cracking spoon to kick it off with too.

That is a ruddy gorgeous ladle! And more, a deeply generous use of your time and branches. Thank you. Go well.

Thanks guys! It feels like my world is back on track, plus, I just took down a tree with lots of blanks, so time to clear the deck!

glad to see the pricing is on track. why don't i ever call you? chalk it up to poor social skills and a high needs infant. soon, though.

One day you'll have to show us how you make your spoons. You've threatened to previously and also teased us that your method is different to Follansbee!

Gavin,
I wrote an article for Fine Woodworking on spoon carving that will hopefully make it to print in the coming months
