Spoon 44 of 52 – The Two Scooped Spice Spoon in Walnut/Mahogany

IMG_9091

Before being a spoon and after it was a tree, this bit of wood was part of a timber shower floor in a ladies changing rooms. A builder offered it to the site manager where I work, and as he knew I made spoons he gave it to me.

So this spoon has probably seen a fair few things its life time, who knows whether it was looking at the tiled floor below or at the ceiling. The builder reckons it is mahogany or walnut, but I am clueless to what it is as I haven’t spent much time working with this type of wood. It was amazing to carve, it had a tight grain but worked easily, and once polished, the grain really popped. Again, another highly practical spoon to add to the collection.

I still have the rest of the the shower floor, so I think there’s a fair few more spoons to be made from this!
