Below I included a picture to show the variations in side profile I tried with this batch. The deep one is the flat front scoop pictured above, and the straight is one of the small spoons near the hook knife.
For these spoons I took down a small Maple sapling, maybe 3-4" diameter at the base, and roughed out this batch within the first hour of having it down. Sometimes I forget how much easier greenwood is to work than the dry or semi-dry stuff I have laying around. With these small, fairly straight spoons I can get close to the 10 minute mark for a halfway decent spoon. I might do a video later today in real-time of carving one.
