This was a pattern I got from Jimthecarver. When I saw it I really got inspired and had to give it a try. I’ve only carved a few spoons, but I gotta say, this was the most dificult I’ve attempted so far. It looked like a simple pattern but as the wood started to come away, the small details get brittle. I think it might be mahogany but I’m really not sure. It was just a left over board from a piece of furniture somewhere along the line. Really light and porous but very easy to carve. Anyway it looked nice and was a fun project. Finish is poly.
Hope you enjoy!

Bro…. you did a good job on this spoon.
Just getting it completed is a huge task in its self. I found this spoon to be quite difficult ….. but hey thats what makes us better carvers.

That is a great spoon. I have some patterns and a good book on carving spoons but I haven’t started one yet.

Your spoon carving looks unique and very hard to accomplish. I really like your wood spirit and I always enjoy native american carvings.You do wonderful art.
