Hello my friends!
My next spoon related blog will include some very vital lessons learned regarding grain and form. For me, no matter how much I think I have learned the well is never dry of additional information. This is a longer Birch server that I finished over the weekend.
I left the canvas blank on my handle from carving, somehow I felt the Birches buttery tones said enough and displayed its grace. The more I looked, I realized the confidence is within the emptiness of any carving. Sometimes the silence makes just as much of an impact as a crowded room of endless ideas.
I feel very happy to have made this spoon, the finial at the end of the handle for me was the perfect stopping point.
I am also preparing additional woodworking projects at my bench, all the while learning more important lessons of spoon craft.
As always I thank you for looking in!
