Tulip Wood spoon with inlaid copper leaf.
I cut a length of copper piping off, cut it down its length, hammered it flat, cut out the shape and then scribed a series of fine featherlike scratches into it.

Totally gorgeous looking spoon. Well done. Project for tomorrow is sorted.

I hope you don’t mind me trying to copy the above. I guarantee you mine will
not be a patch on yours but I absolutely HAVE to give it a go. Probably in beech.

What’s going on with that table under the spoon! Good grief, how are you living, my friend?! The spoon is absolutely wornderful and I’m a big fan of tulip. Next time, pose it over a less attractive backdrop! :)

Thank you very very much for this post. I have been collecting a lot of little pieces of wood with interesting figure and color.. I also have stock set aside for spoons, etc. The copper leaf gives a a great use for the little pieces of wood in my spoons as decoration… YAY.. thank you!!!!!
