This listing is for a custom spoon to be carved from YOUR 'sentimental' wood. It might be from a tree you used to climb at your Grandparent's farm, from an old broken piece of furniture that has been in the family for generations or maybe the wood comes from the tree under which you proposed to your wife.

Trees are always an integral part of our lives... and some trees, for whatever reasons, anchor us to a certain place and time. Some trees we have a 'history' with, which sometimes.... have been shared with others.

This is what this listing offers. If you have such a tree in your memory that shares a certain "sentiment" with someone else, this could be a very poignant gift to give or receive.

Tthe spoons shown above are NOT for SALE. The first two come from a Weeping Beech tree in Bernheim Forest (KY). When my daughter was 3-5 years old, we would visit this tree.... go inside the 'room' the branches created and have our picnics. We called this our 'enchanted tree' because once inside you were completely surrounded by these beautiful long branches that grew all the way to the ground. Fully enclosed and enveloped by the tree's 'energy' we would spend our day.

Recently we revisited (10 years later) and the tree had suffered some storm damage. The Ranger allowed me to carry off a broken branch from which these two spoons were crafted. This is my tribute to 'our' tree.

The third spoon (last photo) is from a piece of purple plum a friend in MN sent to me. She had a sort of 'spiritual' experience under this tree in her garden and when the tree's health declined she sent me a couple of short branches to have a spoon carved.

I will be happy to participate in paying homage to 'your' tree by making a spoon from the wood of that tree. It might be a functional spoon that is used in the kitchen for generations or it can be more ornate and figurative.

It doesn't take much wood to make a spoon. That 50 year old Lilac out front of the old homestead, the apple tree out back or even a piece of the old barn can be fashioned into a special gift for someone who shares a memory related to the place.

Cost will be from $35 for a simple 9" spoon up to $200 for something more intricately carved. The design (and function), while somewhat dictated by the wood, can be discussed and developed. Or you can just allow me to carve whatever the wood suggests.

In any case, a couple of weeks should be allowed at the minimum, due to shipping the wood, carving and return shipping of the spoon.

For the person who 'has everything'..... now you might have the occasion to give them something quite unique and thoughtful.

Shipping will be the actual shipping cost of Priority Mail. International is available as well, as long as customs won't have a problem with 'raw' wood being shipped in.

If you are interested in discussing this possibility, please send me a 'conversation'. Please do NOT click on "Add to Cart".
