A few more bowls and spoons . I’m still not sure why I like making these so much but I’m having fun.
The first bowl is Avocado wood that I helped myself to from a friends firewood pile ( wish I would have gotten some larger logs ) . The 2 smaller ones are from Oak branches from another firewood pile.

The spoons are from some Maple branches with some Manzanita burl buttons . The one on the left has a face that most people are saying it’s an alien ,but my granddaughter says it’s a bunny so thats what we are going with.

The last one is my Egg tray . We have 5 hens and get 4 or 5 eggs a day so I like to show them off on the kitchen counter.

As always thanks for looking and let me know what you think.

That Avocado wood is beautiful!! Nice find in the wood pile, and great job on the bowls and spoons. So what are you using to carve out the bowls? We talkin chisels and gauges, or adze?

Love those egg trays! I’ve never seen a more beautiful way to display the daily harvest from the hens. We will probably have hens in a year…grew up on those brown eggs all my childhood…

Your work is very flowing and enhances the natural beauty in the wood!

Very nice collection! I like the one in photo 5 the most, though. The handle by itself is well shaped and then to have those ‘nodes’ highlighted by the ‘buttons’ just gives a real cool effect. What is the wood type on the egg holder?
