Spoon 28 of 52 – The Right Handed Wavy One in Grey Alder

IMAG7907

I’m still a few weeks behind but finished this curvy one last week. A Frenchman named Thierry chose this bit of wood for me… He picked it up from a log pile and said ‘this will make a good spoon’ – at the time I wasn’t that interested but took the wood anyway out of politeness.

The curve in the wood was barely changed, that’s what it was like after being split. Glad I kept it as it turned out much better than I could have imagined. Beautiful bit of wood and makes a nice change going with the ebb and flow of the wood. There was a nervy moment where the wood split, but I managed to work around this.

For about 3 weeks I have been without an axe, due to coming back from Finland and not getting round to getting my own one. After selling a load of old drum stuff on ebay I treated myself to a Robin Wood Axe. It is bloody amazing, but more about that in another post. See below some pics of the process for this spoon.
