Nice spoon there, Easy!  Umm..whats the point of stirring coffee if'n there aint no cream in it?   heh heh.

What wood was this spoon again?

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.

I'm sorry Easy..   It looked like you had just about an inch of  plain coffee in that cup.  I put my glasses on and took another look.   I do like that spoon tho.  Bet it smelled good carving that wood up.

Never mind me..    bad day today.  ick.

Great work!  I need to get some maple myself to carve up a spoon.

P.S. I like the hawk head keeping the cup company.
What's that smell?

Thanks all


Yeah the maple is great  carving wood to beautiful to work  with


I thought the hawk next to it with the cup and knife  was better than just my  shirt LOL

Very nicely done. The few that I have tried don't look anywhere as nice as yours. Great job

I have learned a great deal about carving them  since I started only a few months ago.   Love to see some pics of yours if you have any

The few that I did I was never happy with so I threw them into the fire. I also never considered them worthy enough to photograph let alone keep. I have to give it another go soon.
