    Well..... Let's just say that if I put it next to the discarded wood pile from the project, you would have trouble telling what was garbage and what was my "spoon".
    Don't ask for a picture. I'm not ready for that type of public shaming. Please tell me they get better and better. I can't draw and my handwriting sucks, so maybe carving isn't my thing.
    On the bright side (according to me and not my wife this is the bright side) there is one less branch on the cherry tree to worry about.... doing whatever bad things it may have done if I hadn't have chopped it off!

    Don't give up capone, look at it as a learning experience.
    You should also sign up for the spoon of the month club...everyone is welcome, regardless of skill level.

    I also suck at drawing and have almost no artistic talents. But when I took up carving my artistic side finally came out! Keep going man, should see my first spoon too, it was god awful now the stuff I make is almost close to be able to sell!

    It is a great hobby get into it!

    My first ..."Spoon"

    Keep going. There is no judging All that matters is that you try and keep trying. If you think about it, every skill we practice here is just like that. You may suck at primitive fire at first but that is a learned skill. Is it not?

    Some people draw the outline and use that as a guide others free carve. Try both ways and see what works for you. Also there is no shame in learning. who cares what it looks like if it works. Main point is to have fun and enjoy what your doing.

    20161231_151251.jpg This was my first shot at it. Figured you shouldn't quit as I excepted this and will charish it even if I ripped the edge off. Note to self, watch the grain of the wood. Try again as I will. But it does fit my hand awesome even if it doesn't work that good.lol

    I actually made a very similar wavy-handled spoon and gave it to my parents one Christmas ago.
