Half my shop is in Illinois and half is 1,265 miles away to where we’re moving in Florida.
I can’t do any real work in either because it looks like a bomb went off.
(The move is getting there, slow but sure.)
So, while getting my “wood fix” on Lumberjocks, I carved these spoons at the computer.
If I don’t get this move done soon, I’ll have to start attending some “woodaholics meetings”.

My apologies to all my real carver friends. LOL
(But it did help a little).

Thanks for looking.

Hey Eric, all the while I thought I’m the one who is in the most challenging situation – living 200Km away from my proper workshop. I can feel the pinch & bite you got. But you managed to make nice spoons, anyhow.
