A Pinch of Mojo …

I’ve been working on these blanks, to eventually make a custom-request spoon rest … By the time I’m done, I’ll have a whole coffin-kiln load to flatten – and then I’ll have a whole lotta spoon rests (to cut), in what I hope are fun and unique color combinations.  I’ve got a blank cooking in …

Squeezing out the last of summer …
