Big Spoons

I'm working on diversity... So I've carved 5 of nearly the same spoon... But they're different to the others...

All from Alder which is a dream to carve.

Many of the knife marks show as facets on the surface of the wood. You can also see where some of the grain has dropped, as the moisture leaves the wood. I like to leave these imperfections, partly because I don't like fiddling with individual spoons for too long and partly because its a reminder of the process.
