I made this spoon for a friend of ours who has been staying with us for a few weeks and is leaving in the morning,it is mahogony I used my vtool to carve “Ireland 2014” and “a good friend is like a 4 leaf clover,good to have and hard to find” I carved the clover into the bowl of the spoon.It took me about 2 hours to carve it.Our friend cried when we presented her it,so ithink she liked it!I finished it with food safe oil as it dries quick and is not smelly!

Nice spoon. Nice sentiment and nice carving work…. esp. on the lettering.

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

Thanks spoontaneous!I have a long way to go until I would be happy with how my carved letters look,Im having difficulty sharpening the chisels I have,they tend to tear instead of cut sometimes!
