This is a coffee scoop I carved from a piece of staghorn sumac. I was surprised by the intense greens found naturally in the wood. It was an interesting species to work with hopefully it will hold up in service. Finish is just flax seed oil and as you can see I only sand lightly leaving most of the tool marks from the knife.

Nice work. Love the wood.

I like your decision to leave it rough.
