I just finished this spoon the other day. I did this one pretty quick. It seems like the more spoons I carve the quicker it is to get them finished. Must be that I am starting to get more spatially oriented to spoon carving. Be one with the spoon grasshopper. Anyways I used the same mystery wood as before from the wood pile and gave it two coats of walnut oil.
I really like this spoon and the way it fits my hand. I carved the spoonook, (I just made that up!:-) deeper this time so that it would work better for soups. Fun stuff!
