These are my latest carvings. The first one is an 8 pointed star made from basswood. The spoon is made from a piece of pine. I plan on doing more 8 pointed stars. Thanks to Arleen from the carverswoodshop for the inspiration.

This is nice, Rick. Keep it up.

I like making spoons and utensils way too much….my wife, daughter, and relatives have a wide selection of knives and spoons! The star looks pretty complex to me!

Fandamtastic Rick, whatever that means. I guess it means you’re doing good bud. Now lets see an Indian Coat like Jordan’s. Just kidding, you’re off to a great start.
