This is my first completed attempt at carving a spoon. The first attempt went bad when I had to stop working on it for several days and left it where it dried out and split. Lesson learned. This one is made from an unknown type of wood, part of a section of limb I recovered from the county dump firewood pile. The wood has an odd grain that makes spots on the surface look rough when they are not. It is finished with a mix of mineral oil and beeswax.
