Here's what I was working on this weekend. This was the beginning step of carving a sycamore spoon. Ugly.
This was after the sanding happened. I decided I liked it at this point.
Here's the spoon after it had been treated with "spoon butter." This is the point when I have a hard time letting them go.
An old schoolmate of my daughter is a chef and has requested a spoon. I've been carving a few with her in mind. Hopefully she can find a couple she likes in my collection.
