The womanly spoon is carved from a piece of Canadian Serviceberry with a few small worm holes. I really, really love the look of this wood. It is more chocolate in color than what I can get the camera to agree to, but the contrast between the dark and light suits me just fine. The disparity in hardness between the two caused a little difficulty in carving and it took effort not to give her cellulite with the sapwood.

The maple seed spoon is from maple (of course). I have been looking on ebay for a really nicely figured piece of maple to make this spoon, but dang!, those guys are proud of their wood. Who says money doesn’t grow on trees? A small piece will sell for $50 plus $14 shipping! Anyways, I will revisit this spoon when I can find (afford) the right piece of wood… and carve it with more detail.

The Pronghorn spoon (well, that’s what it is supposed to be, but my wife sees a frog) is from a piece of cedar I scavenged a couple of weeks ago. The intent was to use all sapwood for the ‘skull’ and the heartwood for the horns. I got closer on the back… but was waaaay off on the front of the spoon bowl. Makes no difference though, cause I’m having fun. Thanks for checking them out.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

Love the creativity of it all and the possibilities too.

Great looking spoons.

Nice work. I like the difference among them all, you’re not restrained by convention that’s for sure! :)
