I was using this as a shelf in the shed for keeping screw-drivers etc within easy reach but I recently
changed things around and had this bit left over. I drew some curvy lines between the holes
and found this spoon was hiding there all along.
It’s beech and after I cut it to shape with a coping saw, I sat out in the Autumn sunshine and had a
very enjoyable afternoon of peace and quiet and carving.
The tools in pic 2 are the only ones I used plus some fine grit sand paper (that has since vanished!)
In pic 3 Laura has discovered that Daddys spoon is also a very handy big brother whacker.

Great looking spoon, sisters sometimes seem to be a necessary evil until they get older, I had three of them,
but we all outgrew the problem. Glad you are enjoying the woodworking and carving.

At least she’s interested in woodworking, sort of.

Nice piece, especially with hand tools.
