After completing my first carved spoon, very slowly; I have quickly become rather obsessed.
In the last few days, I have used up all of the small silver birch log I brought from the Assington Mill course. I now have three new spoons, and have learnt a lot in the process.
First I carved this one, and kept the knot raised near the bowl to provide a rest.
Now I just need more logs and a great deal of practice. It is so much fun, and a really satisfying craft. If any of you ever get the chance to take a spoon carving course, enjoy.
