The Salad Set

The Salad Set has been carved from a very old bench that Barry Loewen (CanadianWoodCrafts) was asked to haul to the landfill. Rather than waste the beautiful wood by throwing it away, he took the bench home and has been recycling it into spoons and coffee scoops. The rich bold grain of the Douglas Fir complements the pieces carved from it. Barry has had a great deal of pleasure giving the wood a new home and purpose, and hopefully a long life as a useful utensil for someone. Kelli Coaxum (Kelliope) added the natural jute and wood bead loops so that the salad set can be enjoyed hanging on a kitchen cabinet or wall.

The craftsmanship is so stunningly beautiful and I love the story about the evolution of the wood. This salad set would make a great addition to anyone's kitchen.
