Mountain Man Fork & Spoon

Furnished content.

Mountain Man Fork & SpoonI made these for my Mountain Man Kit. I needed something a bit more rugged than the usual utensils. I love the Beaver cause they work so hard and are a tough little creaure. We have some nearby and they built a dam and a lodgehouse too. I even swam (snorkelled) with some in the Mad River in Vermont back in the 70s. The momma beaver swam up to me and looked into my facemask, wondering what I was doing there. She uttered a strange sound and she and two beaver kits (young) swam up into their lodge through an underwater entrance. I will never forget that day. Wish I had a Go-Pro camera to film it, but theywere not available back then.

My first lathe project. Beer bottle stopper  - I guess you could us it in a wine bottle too. About 2 years ago, Woodcraft went out of business. The owner retired. I purchased a lathe from their classroom because it was a great deal and he threw in a few tools to boot; I had yet to put the lathe to use.Getting into epoxy, I purchased a cheep cylinder mold to pour the excess epoxy into.I finally decided to try my luck. Well, it is round. Beyond that, nothing fancy. Since, despite my bantering with others on this site, I often have a partial beer waiting when I get to the no finger cutting ops of a project.I decided I needed a stopper. So, ta-da. My first lathe project.Certainly, the next one will be better.Thanks for visiting.Ps. Poppy (Poplar) and Teak say hello from the French Goat Bar & Drill.Pss. Just spayed it with polyurethane. It pops. But, then again. It might be eating the epoxy.
