Hello friends, I have been more of a viewer than project maker in the last 3 months or so…lol. All of your projects look terrific and keep motivating my love of woodworking.
I have a few more projects to share that are on the bench needing more attention but for now here is…....
my latest Birch Spoon!
This one fits about as well into my hand as any I have carved. Very happy with the balance and form on this. Works effortlessly for eating with and that is really what makes for a good wooden spoon. I was able to fall a small section of Birch from my woods and I am glad to do so for the tree was just starting to decay and soon would die and be wasted into the ground. This section was still strong and green, my knife glided through the fibers as I began to shape my work. Green Birch is a treat to carve with Axe and knife.
Be well friends and I hope to be more involved soon..lol.
Keep making shavings and thanks for looking!
