Spoon 7 of 52 – The Long Wavy Tea Spoon in Silver Birch.

Usually I am obsessed with drawing out the spoon and making it as symmetrical as possible.  I tried a different approach on this one.

Whilst splitting some fire wood the other night I noticed a split with a lovely curve and bulbous knot, looked like perfect spoon material.

So for this one I didn’t draw anything. I just got my knife and went with the flow of the grain and knots in the wood – not letting myself to get obsessed with the symmetry or the small details.

The head nearly cracked off because there’s and knot running right through it. Instead, there’s a little hole in the bottom, good for draining tea bags maybe.

Think I’ll stick to my usual approach for most of my future spoons but pretty happy with the result.
