Off to market - ladles, leaf spoons and wedding cake knife

Over the weekend we did more riveting on the award books - but I did get time to finish off the bits that are heading off to Maleny Additions. Seems like I will continue to makes Leafspoons and Ladles for some time to come - still a demand out there.

I finished one of the wedding cake knives - I think it has turned out well. The blade is about 23.5cm long. Eight rivets attach the handle to the blade. The ornate blade has a slight fold to give it rigidity; and it is quite sharp even though it is copper.

The Leafspoons, Ladles and knife will be on the market in Maleny Additions tomorrow. A successful weekend.
