This week is another rowan spoon. One of my favourite carvers, not to mention an amazing woodworker generally and impressive photographer (check out his blog if you haven't come across it before: http://pfollansbee.wordpress.com/ ) is Peter Follansbee - resident 17th century woodworker and carver at the Plimoth Plantation where he domonstrates the work methods and styles of furniture that came across to America from Europe with the pilgrim fathers. It is one of my greatest wishes to visit the Plimoth Plantation and to take one of Peter's jointed stool workshops at Country Workshops (Drew Langsner's place - another hero of mine).
Anyway, I really admire Peter's work and his style of spoons, so this is my tribute a la Peter Follonsbee.
