Spoon 41 of 52 – The Half Moon Pickled Onion Spoon in Oak

IMG_8824

This is made from the same bit of oak that I made the Clove Spoon from. I knew this spoon was going to be challenging from the onset. You may have also noticed that it is not really a spoon. I ended up carving through the head, but rather than chucking it I thought it might work quite well as a pickled onion drainer – an essential kitchen appliance for every home, one that is so essential it has yet to hit the mass market. The wood was so hard and because of the design, quite tricky to complete.

I ended up changing the design in several ways, not including a little fancy bit on the end and making it shorter as I had cracked it. I am impressed with the strength of the wood, even with such thin sections.
