Black walnut spoon with carving and ebonizing. It is for sale if you would like it.
Osage Orange long handled spoon. It too is for commerce.
Here is a little of that walnut spoon before it was finished. The black or ebonizing is made by brushing a little bit of vinegar that has iron oxide (rust) dissolved in it. It reacts with tannic acid in wood and turns black on contact.
Now that our does have freshened with the wholesome milk of provision we have soap abounding. It’s good stuff.

Beautiful photos as always, my friend. I am so impressed with your recent woodworking. It’s a true craft and art what you are able to do!
Thanks Mikey, I appreciate it. I think I am finally getting to a place where I can actually make what is in my heart to make.
It shows, my friend! I hope to finish an email to you soon. Thanks for your patience.
Jack, love the walnut spoon, it makes me want to start a stew just so i can use the spoon for taste tests.
Hi Tyler, it is always good to hear from you. Thank you, kindly. I would love to see what that spoon would look like after a lifetime of good use transporting stew.
Wow…these are heirlooms Jack. Beautiful!
Thank you for the gracious word “heirloom”, Jana, like the weaving of story through generations.
Incredible. I think this takes the definition of ‘spoon’ to a whole new level. They also look like religious objects. Which masquerade as spoons. How incredibly beautiful.
It always delights me how you seem to see into the heart of what I desire to say, Steven. I look long for the sacred to flow out of my work: spoons, lambs, drawings, bowls, lettuces and wheat. Thank you for calling it out.
