Title: Birch Spoon
Post by: Kep on March 27, 2012, 02:00:16 PM
I made a start on this spoon while i was down at the BCUK, Sussex Group meet last weekend, the roughing out of the spoon was done with the axe and then carved down with my Little Whittler (http://kepisbushcraft.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/little-whittler-neck-knife.html).

 The spoon is approx 9" long and has a bowl width of 1 3/4" at it's widest point, the spoon has been finished off with a tooled finish, it features a spine on the reverse of the narrow neck for strength.

You really have a knack for getting great symmetry with your spoon carving. Beautiful work!
