Over the weekend I went down to my dads in Peterborough to celebrate his birthday with him. Whilst there I went to the local woodland park close to his house to go search for any wood that had been recently felled. Whilst doing this I thought it would be worth looking for some crooks to make some nicely cranked spoons from. There wasn’t a great choice of species as willow was the only thing that was felled at the time, but beggars can’t be choosers. It will make some excellent general cooking spoons, plus will be nice to practice for when I get denser/harder crooked woods.
Some of the crooks I was able to find:
Over the next couple of days or weeks these crooks will be fully carved up into lovely spoons.
