The Artful Wooden Spoon


Joshua Vogel, the Kingston, NY woodworker has substantially grown his body of work through the years – beginning with his hand-turned art vessels up to his meticulously constructed furniture. Along the way, his workshop (Blackcreek Mercantile) began producing everyday objects and tools for the kitchen that included cutting boards and his wildly popular wooden spoons.

In celebration of these dining tools, Vogel is releasing his first book, The Artful Wooden Spoon. It documents his approach to making this everyday utensil. From the methodology to the actualization of the spoon. Through historical methods and traditional forms he guides us through the steps to creating our very own keepsake.
