Shoe horn - apple tree

249.00

Silky smooth shoe horn made out of apple wood.

Length: 30 cm    Width: 4,5 cm

Two old apple trees were chopped down in Mosby, just outside of Kristiansand, Norway. The owner agreed to let us have them, so that the wood could get a useful purpose. We sawed them up on a well used bandsaw in our workshop. We couldn't wait for the wood to dry, so we actually carved small kitchen utensils while the wood was still wet. The advantage of this is that it is softer to carve into and that the small items will then dry much faster. Look at the great contrast between the sapwood and the heartwood.

Apple tree is a hardwood, very suitable for small furniture and tools.
