"A Gathering of Spoons"
by Norman Stevens


For more than thirty years I have been carving spoons by hand using native hardwoods, usually from our own woods, sometimes given to us by friends. We don't use exotic or imported woods. The spoons are made using traditional tools and methods, splitting them from the log then shaping them with hatchet, drawknife, spoke shave and gouges. This orients the spoon with the grain, making it stronger, and means a more interesting one-of-a-kind piece as I work with the natural features of the wood. 

My spoons are finished with much careful sanding to a smooth satin touch and are finished with a non-toxic edible oil.  Most are made to be used, whether in the kitchen or simply for stroking. As artists and artisans we enjoy working with wood in this fashion. 

If you have any questions regarding the spoons shown below please feel free to email or call and I'll do my best to answer your questions.

Most spoons are priced from $20 to $150. Secure payment can be made using PayPal (Credit Cards logos). Although I try to keep the listing below current, please email before sending payment to be sure the spoon(s) you want are available). Thanks!


I am carving most days.
Here are the spoons we have available right now. Please note that the
two special spoons, # ending in 'R', were carved by Sue.

Sue tells me that the colors of these photos are not very true to the actual color of the spoons.
I'm pretty color blind - and do my best, but the spoons all have a nice warm tones.
