Riverwood Treenware


My father has been making treenware for 30+ years and I have been apprenticing with him and hope to keep the art of spoon carving alive. I enjoy creating functional wooden utensils like those that have been in use for thousands of years. I mostly use cherry wood, but also enjoy working with others such as apple, apricot, ambrosia maple, sumac and osage, anticipating the finished product.
