From the wonderful forest of pine comes this new pine spoon! The grain is a show off for sure and as usual a wonderful wood to carve with.

Let the spoon season for a decent amount of time in order to dull any back taste of the sap and you can’t go wrong creating a spoon with this fine pine!

A special cheers to Jamie Speirs, I hope your looking in…I sure enough used some of my pine material for spoons!

Thanks for taking a look and keep on creating!

All the best,

Joe

Wow the grain of that wood is beautiful. Crazy how thick the dense part of the growth rings are.

Real nice one, Joe. You keep reminding me to finish the 12 spoons I started in Nov!!
What so you use to sand out the inside?? That is really holding me up- to get a good finished surface on the inside- the business part of the spoon!!..Jim
