Leaf was made during the spoon collaboration. It is carved from Serviceberry wood… one of my favorite woods to carve.

This footed spoon reminded me of Lil’ Abner before I colored it. Carved from a root from Brazilian peppertree (invasive weed tree here in So. Fl).

Bogey is from the trunk of a small Bougainvillea shrub. It had some orange streaks between the hard and sap woods. Just doesn’t show well in the pic.

Twig is carved from the the Star fruit branch. I thought it was a stupid idea but the spoon sorta grew on me.

Next one is a stab at making a functional spoon…. wild apple.

The Twist spoon is from sycamore. Thanks for looking… I’ll go back into my hole now.

-- I just got done cutting three boards and all four of them were too short. (true story)

These are really great spoons.
I think i am getting hooked on carving spoons. I have carved about 12 in the last 2 weeks.
Not as nice as yours, but a lot of fun.

I also like the twist spoon , I’ve done a couple of tries at this style, they didn’t come out as nice as this but I keep trying. It’s my new addition. Always glad to see your work.

What is cool with your work is, there are almost no pieces of wood you could not use. No scraps….......
