On Carving Tudor Era Wooden Spoons
This is my photo journal of my journey into the world of hand-carved medieval spoons.

We'll begin, I think, with the Credit Where Credit is Due Department. I am a spoon novice. I am just a spoon novice with a digital camera and a web-design compulsion. So I get published more often than artisans who are, perhaps, more deserving.
This photoblog was shot at a class on spoon making by Lord Charles of Westermark, of the Kingdom of Calontir, whom I consider to be the go-to guy on wooden spoons in the SCA.
That said, we will continue . . .
