Six years ago, I met a man from Puerto Rico and learned to make wooden spoons. With invaluable guidance from league jurors and countless hours honing my craft (now 500+ spoons later), I still get a thrill when I hand split a log, study the unique grains and facets inside and envision the spoon to be. I use only hand tools in my work and I enjoy creating beautiful and functional utensils from our own NH hardwoods.
