2010-03 Mulberry

A very recently carved ladle.  Mulberry is unique in the yellow color.  Sometimes you get black streaks that give it a bumblebee look.  This spoon has a chip carved rim.

Status:  Available ($40)

2010-02 Boxelder

This is one of my favorites.  A Boxelder spoon from MN.  This was carved the summer of 2009.  Once I document my current collection everything will be date driven, but I need to catch up.

2010-01 Ash Ladle

Although there are a few spoons before this one, this is the first spoon where I had that moment.  This spoon is carved from an Ash tree branch found in my yard in the fall of 2005.

rod termaat - spoon carver

I have been needing a better avenue to document the spoons and ladles that I carve. I have tried several different methods, but none has worked over the long term. This blog will be simple. I will photo each and every spoon that I carve and label it with a number. Each spoon will be either available, or already spoken for. I have carved at least 100 spoons each year for the last 5 years. It has gotten so that I can not longer remember many of the spoons I have carved and sold. Some will be elegant and others just users, but at least some record will persist. rod
