A Camp Spoon for the Wolf Cubs

Furnished content.

A Camp Spoon for the Wolf CubsThe local Wolf Cubs were cooking for years with a long stick and a sort of spatula screwed to it.
After a while the valuable kitchen utensil broke and they asked me if I could help.As I never had an opportunity to make one of these nice canoe paddle we see everywhere, I thought that was a good occasion!Akela and the kids were super happy with the result, they all loved it.Now I used beech and walnut, glued together with Titebond II…and I realised the wolf cubs are sometimes stirring boiling water with it…I am a bit scared the glue will not last this rough treatment…I must say, I am not much of a cook myself… and I did not anticipate the boiling water… “D'oh!”...so far and after one week in use, the spoon is still in one piece, I keep my fingers crossed.

Small Pyrography BowlMade from a piece of jacaranda. 7” diameter and sprayed with satin lacquer. This was a crotchet pattern I found on line but this bowl was too small to burn the complete pattern.

Bed side tables

Furnished content.

Bed side tablesRecently finished a few project for a client, this set of bedside table is one of my favorites.. Made from Alder I cut/dried milled myself. Pretty well everything is bookmatched. No screws/nails involved, simple glue and bamboo skewers that I cut down to act as small dowels. I was asked to design a set of bedside tables that could be no longer than 16” (because of the light switch), with enough room for a cup of tea and a book. I came up with a simple concept of a hinged shelf that could folded up (held in place with a neodymium magnet)or fold down and be strong enough to hold items.. Books can be stored in the ends .. I was going to go with a French cleat but it would have taken up too much room so instead I routed a small area for metal screw hangers. Finished with Rubio. Comments ya or na welcome!
