This spoon is carved from a Honey Locust tree. I recieved a small log from a friend at our local carving guild. She had said that last winter had taken a toll on the tree and needed to be removed. And lucky for me I was able to use some of it. The yellow colored sap wood against the tan heartwood was a perfect choice for a spoon.
It carved like olive wood (unbelieveably hard) but with the grain of oak….very open grain. I finished it in poly.
Its about 13” X 2.5” X 7/8”
Thanks for viewing and God bless you.
Last pic is of the drawing on tracing paper.
