Sustainability – use and re-use of broken things
This is the story of my first self-made spoon – or actually spork. It took me 2 days to finish it and I felt quite proud. Sure, it was a little crooked, but I had put some effort in it and let the texture of the wood be my guide.
I used this spoon to cook meals on open fire and it worked really well, so I was sad when it broke one day right at a knothole. But then I fetched my carving knives and found a way to re-use the broken pieces. Now I have a cooking fork and a tiny cup. CT
