Woody goodness...

My husband is great at working with wood (he will be mortified when he reads this - he is both humble and modest but I don't mind boasting on his behalf!!)...he loves carving and turning but rarely has the time to indulge his hobby.  However, he is now making an effort to clear some time and he has been very productive!!  He started a wood turning class two weeks ago and came home with this little vase after his second class...isn't it gorgeous?  It's made of cherry wood but it hasn't been kiln-dried so it may crack...I really hope it doesn't.  It's out in the workshop now and we are hoping that it will dry slowly and without breaking.

He has also hand-carved some lovely spoons for me!  One is made of oak (the one with the longer handle) and the other two are made of sycamore.  I love them and have more on order (along with some bowls, platters, plates and knives - heehee).  What do you think?  I have started a board on Pinterest to help inspire him!






Hope you are having a great week :)

They're beautiful - there's something just so beautiful and enduring about wood! Lucky you with such a talented husband!

Just too lovely! He is indeed very clever and very lucky to have someone who truly appreciates his work. I am a sucker for carved spoons - they make such a beautiful object. Hope the little vase doesn't crack. I hope too that Sophie is OK.

Talk soon, Stephie x

These spoons are beautiful - I love good design that is simple & functional. They must put a little extra love in the food they create.
