Small scoops from Hawaiian Koa Wood! This Koa had some beautiful curl in it, and I was surprised to see such a color contrast between the two when they were pulled side by side from the saw piece of wood. @ojaioaks.fallenwood sent me this piece and requested these pieces be made, I was happy to oblige.
I made a scoop like this a couple months ago and loved the shape. I sent it off before I traced the shape but I think I got it pretty close to the original. These are smaller scoop, meant for coffee or sugar, or dollops of yogurt.
Hello there, welcome to Axe and Apron. My name is Todd, I spent over 2 decades in the restaurant industry before becoming a farm worker and wood carver. Through this page I will be offering my hand carved kitchen tools, there is also a link to my Etsy shop in my bio. I'll also be offering myself, (on a limited basis at this point), for small party catering and private chef services. As I build my small business, I plan to offer bespoke culinary classes for individuals or small groups, as well as the products of crafts that I'll be exploring in the future. I'm excited to see where this goes! Thank you for reading, thank you for visiting and thanks for following along! More about myself and my offerings to come.
Having a little fun experimenting tonight. All 6 spatulas came from the same piece of poplar. The bottom 2 are left natural. The third up from the bottom was heat treated in the oven at 415 degrees for 15 minutes and the top 3 at the same temperature for 1 hour. I’m a little partial to the darker examples. #woodspoons#woodspatula#heattreating#makesomething#poplar
Mixing knife and machine. The large spoon was hand carved whereas the darker spatulas were made with bandsaw and belt sander. I enjoy both processes and each requires it’s own sets of skills. I just enjoy making things. #makersgonnamake#craftednotproduced#woodspoons
