    A fellow carver sent me some spalted apple wood. I started in on it with a knife and out popped these two spoons. Fun wood to carve and neat to look at.....

    I took a limb off a apple tree for my Mom a few weeks ago. Then the fellow across the street asked her for it, and he used it in his smoker and brought over some BBQ for her and I got some of it. I counted that fair trade.

    nice looking use of the wood on your part also.

    If you tell me this was your first attempt at carving a spoon I'm really gonna be upset. Beautiful work.

    Thanks, fellow bushcrafters!

    Tom....ha, ha.....no, been doing it a few years now. Plenty of clunkers along the way though....only way to learn. :)

    With a wood working shop at my disposal I couldn't take an 8 foot 4x4 and make a decent tooth pick. Your work is impressive.

    Very nice work. When I tried carving a spoon, it looked like someone dragged a 2x4 down the highway. :)

    Now that wood is gold! I just finished a spalted maple spoon. I have some spalted apple next up. But it's not nearly as colourful as that! Your lines, tapers and finish are sweet! Very nice!:35:
    Cheers Jim
