Wedding Present

A good friend of mine got married this weekend, not thinking much of John Lewis and his wedding lists I decided a personal touch might be appreciated... Finally finished the beast last week, it's all hazel, carved green. The rack base is hewn from hazel by axe and the beam was bent by pouring boiling water over it to soften then setting with rope ties.

The tenons are held in the mortices by small hazel pins. 

Carving 6 spoons all nearly the same was harder than I thought... Here's the reject pile... Don't worry, they'll all live on somewhere.

Congratulations to Geoff and Laura Smith, best wishes and lots of love for the future.
