• 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".
