Carved this spoon out of a fir tree that was cut in December. Tools included a knife and hatchet.
It was fun and I look forward to making more.

Here's my submission.



This was made from the same dry alder that I made my Mallet.

It would've been much easier if the wood was green.

I don't have any good whittling tools, so I used a utility knife. It was a pain cutting in the bowl, but I managed.

The whole process took me about 2hrs or so.

This. Exactly this. This is what my therapist has been talking about. And now with a tiny ad:
The Better World Book Kickstarter is running right now!
