I pulled some buckthorn out of a friend’s brush pile. It’s nasty stuff. Who knew that it had such hidden beauty?!
Finished with beeswax and mineral oil.

Very pretty. I love the flow of the spoon.

Looks good, it has a nice shape and the wood is pretty. Great carving!

Yeah…. Buckthorn is a pretty wood….. but also very hard. You did right by that piece of brush.
