I was recently working on a few projects in my shop that had to do with building my show stock up and suppling a few local stores for their summer inventories. This picture was taken at my workbench after I had finished a few double measuring spoons. I was checking the bowl depth and angle. To calibrate these types of measuring spoons I use salt measures to the right quantity. This step takes a little practice because there is always a little more sanding to do. Taking away too much wood will result in a fine piece of kindling for the fire. You can always take wood away, but it's really hard putting it back.
Updated news from the Studio:
I'll be involved in opening a new Artisains Co-op in Freeport, Maine this May. My work will be there along with many other fine Artists and Artisains from Maine will be sold there. The Grand Opening will be announced soon.
