come together with your hands

spoon, originally uploaded by skippy haha.

if you are looking for a handmade, one-of-a-kind present for somebody or yourself, might i suggest a spoon made by Wormwood Creations?

the spoons are super-high quality, made from an eastern red cedar tree branch that fell in my friend Estes' mother's yard about 10 years ago, and he has put hours and hours into making the smoothest, finest, most functional spoons you could imagine. they are simply beautiful.

he sells them sometimes outside the Grove Arcade downtown asheville, and is glad to take orders by email or over the phone.

if you give a spoon to somebody (your brother), you might get a message saying 'thanks for the spoon, i can't wait til i have kids so i can hit them with it!"

here is Estes booting ball last week while holding his 1-year old niece.

Does Wormwood make forks? If so, I think I know what I want for Christmas.

skippy haha said...

that is an excellent suggestion. then he can possibly make the ultimate - TONGS!

Thanx for the post skippy, I have had little luck making a quality fork unless it is a "glueup" of lots of thin pieces of wood. The tongs should be a snap though, send me a sketch, I would love to give it the old Wormwood try. There are some more pics on a link from Wormwood@gmail.com.
Peace and love
