The butterknife, which is made of juniper, was my first task at school. It was sort of a warmup task, and might have been meant to gauge the level of each student.
It is whittled, and scraped to near finish with the whittling knife as a scraper. Then sanded with 180 and 240 grit.

The spade and spoon is Birch, with Sallow glued onto handles.
The task was “bending in a caul”.
I’m not very happy with the shape of the spade’s handle, but it sits snugly in the hand.

Lovely tools and functional too. Like the shapes especially the spoon, looks comfy to hold. Well done!
