Making an Antique Working Spoon Using Modern Power Tools

Making an Antique Working Spoon Using Modern Power Tools

This useful spoon came into my household by way of my mother-in-law, who says that a farmhand made it way back when she was a little girl in Minnesota. In my book, since she is now 85 years old, that makes this an antique spoon. It looks like it has been around for a long while, but I was surprised to find that it was a very handy tool in the modern kitchen. It is long enough to stir a deep pot, deep enough to be used as a ladle, and thin at the edges for taking a sip of the soup. The flat end on the bowl is great for stirfry and for getting the last bits out of the skillet, like a spatula.

Whimsical Gnome Carving

Whimsical Gnome Carving

When I have displayed gnome home bark carvings, I have been frequently asked, "What do the gnomes look like?” Well, way back in the annals of time, I had whittled out a few "tomten" (actually a lot of them), which became my gnomes. They had tall hats which were sometimes crooked and sometimes decorative, and I gave them away to collect dust on someone else's shelf. My tomten/gnomes had big loopy cartoon eyes, crooked noses and, in fact, crooked, uneven everything.
