Below is a pair of Maple spoons that I roughed out tonight. I'm attending a wedding this coming weekend, and I think a few spoons will make a suitable gift. I have to carve at least one more, because I realized too late that the groom is a lefty, and I made these both righty. These are pretty good sized, that's about a 4" knife blade. Perfect for cooking or serving. I'll let them dry out for a couple of days and then finish them up. You may notice the funky handle on the one-sometimes, despite my best intentions, the wood is just too stubborn. It will get some more shaping when I finish them, so it looks less like I cut off a chunk by accident and more like a cool, funky handle.
