Liam's Luck Wood Craft
Liam carving Spurtles at The Bloomsburg Fair
Spurtle. Yes, it is a word! "Spurtle" is an ancient Scottish word that, loosely interpreted, means "mixing stick". But doesn't "Spurtle" sound so much better than "mixing stick"? 15 plus years ago, Mike (that's me) started making spurtles as gifts. About 5 years ago, Liam (our son, pictured above) approached his dad and asked how he should go about earning money to take part in a People To People Student Ambassador tour of Europe. I suggested he go to our workshop and make spurtles, and I would help him sell them. That was the beginning of Liam's Luck Wood Craft. Now, two People To People tours and several years later, we are still making spurtles. Since then, we have added several items to our product line, and we began attending craft shows and fairs, demonstrating our craft, using traditional tools and techniques. These days, Liam is attending college. He earns his tuition one spurtle at a time.
Quality. We believe that everyone is entitled to quality craftsmanship. We guarantee our spurtles against breakage, as long as they are cared for correctly (never placed in a dishwasher) and not used for purposes other than cooking, such as prying open stuck windows.
Craftsmanship. Each item we sell is hand crafted in our workshop. We put our hearts and hard work into each and every item.
Sustainability. We use only Pennsylvania hardwoods. When possible, we use wood that is reclaimed from prior uses.
Affordable. We believe that excellence should be affordable.
