Spoon 02 of 52 – The Wiggly Snail Shell Sugar Spoon in Silver Birch Heart Wood

Week 2

We’ve already jumped into the second week of the year, new year’s resolutions eagerly skipping by our sides, hand in hand, looking longingly into our eyes. I wonder how long this relationship will last, I guess this is considered the honeymoon stage. For some this means abstaining from alcohol for others it means sweating it out in the gym and sticking to a silly diet etc etc…. For me however, that means making another spoon, 1 a week, for a year, not such a bad resolution I’d say.

I’ve given this one the catchy title of wiggly snail shell sugar spoon. I think the wood is aspen, but can’t be sure, anyone know? Early on in the whittling process I nearly snapped off the head and was close to giving up and throwing it away. Glad I persevered. Enjoyed making this spoon, definitely learnt a lot and couldn’t even see the grain till I sanded it and oiled it, came up a treat! 2 down 50 to go.
