“Brother Delmer” Hand-Turned Honey Dipper
Hand turned honey dipper of rock maple from our “Brother Delmer” trees by our friend Peter Asselyn of Durham, Maine. One of Sabbathday Lake’s Brother Delmer Wilson’s landmark maple trees planted in front of the Ministry’s Shop in 1898 became dangerously rotten from damage sustained long ago from a severe lightning strike. In 2016, Brother Arnold had it entirely removed along with another monumental maple tree in the front right corner of the Shaker Cemetery, believed to have been planted by Brother Delmer between 1920 and 1935. Four young maples have been planted in place of those two 1898 trees recently cut and two others cut several years ago. Although sad to lose Brother Delmer’s trees, we are excited that their wood didn’t go to waste. Peter Asselyn, expert woodturner and long-time friend of Shaker Village, turned out all sizes of bowls and honey dippers from the recently-removed landmark trees planted by Brother Delmer. We are deeply grateful for Peter’s willingness, appreciation, and commitment to honor the Shaker legacy through his own talents. Satin-smooth finish. *Please note, your honey dipper will be inscribed "Brother Delmer".
“Elder Joseph” Hand-Turned Honey Dipper
Hand turned of rock maple from our tree “Elder Joseph” by our friend Peter Asselyn of Durham, Maine. In 1898, the Shakers planted a maple tree to honor the life of Elder Joseph Brackett (1797-1882) who is perhaps best-known as the composer in 1848 of the famous Shaker song, Simple Gifts. This monumental maple tree stood in the middle of Shaker Village for 116-years before it had to be removed. The wood from each limb was carefully cut and set aside for friend Peter to turn into bowls and honey dippers. Satin-smooth finish.
