    Very nice work. I like the desert willow one too. I would never have thought of such pretty wood from that tree.

    Thanks, guys!

    NevadaBlue....most of it isn't so colorful. This piece grew next to a lake and spent a fair amount of time submerged. I think that's how it got its interesting grain.....

    Very nice work! Your first pic, left mesquite spoon. I've been scared to go that thin between bowl and handle! That takes a very steady hand I'm guessing. Seriously impressed!
    Cheers Jim

    Those are some fine looking utensils, almost a shame to use them.
