I had a broken Acacia board that had been floating around in the workshop.
So I thought I would try and carve a spoon. Well…. one spoon grew into four and still carving them.
I started with the gumnuts and Eucalyptus leaves.
Then the NSW emblem of the Waratah Then i thought I would try for all the floral emblems of each Australian state.
The Cooktown orchid for Queensland
I had one order for the city of Brisbane which happens to be a red poinsettia even though iys a native to Mexico.
I am really enjoying these as they are relatively stress free and easy to do once cut. And they turn out well.
Once the carving is finished I coat with food grade oil or wax. I realised that oil is easier because of the carved detail.

-- Theresa,

Wow, they are all very nice. I guess spoons are as addictive and pens. Thank you for sharing your awesome project with us today from Henrico County Virginia
