This is my carving for the spoon carving class.I used mahogany which I had laying around.After I cut out the spoon i realized the top cut off was almost a good as my intended spoon,so I had a practice spoon to work on.Finished with boiled linseed oil.I carved them with chisels and power carver hope that is legal.Did a little woodburning and glued in some swarovsky crystals for the eyes.I won’t be using this to stir the pot ,but had a good time carving them.

Nice work on those but many ladies will not use these at all and would throw ‘em in the trash! Snake aficionados on the other hand will love ‘em.

Bill…. those are a couple of really, cool spoons!! You have a much steadier hand than I do, the way you manage to burn in a signature that small. The scales are cool and so are the eyes. A+ top to bottom.

Nice workmanship, but holy cow! If I put one of those in a kitchen drawer, you can’t imagine the fireworks that would follow upon its discovery!
