Carved in walnut, this spoon was a total flop in my opinion. A friend liked it and said I should finish it so I did my best even though I dont like it.
I wanted to try putting a hole in the scoop in the shape of a heart. I didnt like the hole so I infilled it with the checker board left overs from a knife project.
Anyway I hope she likes the spoon….Roberta its all yours!

Very nice piece. Your carving is great and the inlay adds more interest to it. I am sure she will love it.

Keep it up.

I like it. Others don’t see it the way you envisioned it, they just see the finished product, which is actually quite nice. Keep up the good work.
