I have left this spoon where it is, slightly unfinished, and un-oiled. I was seriously tight with time last week, due to running the pennine way in 10 days with my friend Dave, for more info take a look at our website: http://www.running10in10.WordPress.com. I finished this before the run, on the journey to my mum’s place and was sanding it on the platform whilst waiting for my train! Got a few strange looks but it beats staring at your smart phone right.
A friend suggested the use for this one – coffee in the big cup and cognac in the small. This would be ‘coffee deluxe’ by Finnish standards. Coffee ‘brutal’ is just coffee, and coffee ‘normal’ is just cognac, naturally!
This is my first green spoon – where I have used wood that is fresh from the living tree. I had helped clear some old hazel earlier that day and then worked it that evening. It’s strange as it works very differently to seasoned wood. But it turned out ok. Lets hope it doesn’t crack during the drying process.
The wood was stunning one cut, and the rays that connect the inner section of the trunk with the outer sections were clearly visible.
