Hey everyone! Hope all is well out there in the land of wood work!

Here is my latest spoon carving session.

Made from pine this piece is a real favorite. I attempted a more bold curvature in this spoons design and with some hard work was rewarded with a real looker and user of a spoon.

The website is in the final stages of touch ups!
Soon friends I will announce the launch of my new website with plenty of spoon craft, woodcraft, traditional hand tools and all sorts of ongoing stuff!

Thanks for taking a look, and as always keep makin’ shavins’!!!!

Another one-of-a kind true beauty. Love the grain on this piece! Great workmanship.

Gorgeous spoon Joe. It reminds me of the strata that you sometimes see in sandstone.

I really like this one Joe. What is the material … Yellow Heart?

The curvature is a lot different than the mostly flat spoons!

The wood grain and curvature in the handle work well together. Your style is evolving. Nice piece. RH
