Home of David Rully – The Spoonmaker

               What used to be a hobby has now become a full time business, one that still require 40 hours a week.  Actually, it’s more like 60 – 80 hours per week.  Sawdust everywhere!

              Like most of us, each spoon starts out as a rough, unformed piece of organic matter with great potential.  It’s only through careful handling, shaping, and finishing that the true transformation comes about.   

              Practical art in the best way, these spoons are made to be used even though there are those customers who say they are going to hang them on the wall.  These utensils are heirloom quality hardwood and their life is easily extended with a little thoughtful, loving care, such as oiling them with a good cooking oil every now and then. (We use olive)  Also, they hate dishwashers. (The mechanical kind, that is.)  They are wood, and will stain if left in that spaghetti sauce for an hour. But, under normal wear they should last for years.  And no, we don’t sell spanking spoons, although we sure get a lot of comments regarding “When I was a kid…”

           Thank you for your support.  We hope to see you at one of the Art & Wine Craft  shows  where we sell  February through December.
