I started by picking a curved branch, I then used a small hand axe to make a very rough spoon shape. Then I moved on to using the carving knife to continue forming the 'spoon' shape. I decided to make a wiggly top so left the end of the spoon thick. For the bowl of the spoon I used a spoon knife. These are knives that have been curved so you can scrape out the bowl without damaging the sides.
After making the bowl I used the knife on the back of it to give more of a bowl shape. Then I tackled the wiggly bit. I chose the way the wiggle was goin to go by the pattern on the wood. It's difficult to see in the pic but there is a pink seam running all the way up the spoon.
When I'd finished carving I used a rough sand paper all over it and then a fine sand paper. I then used grapeseed oil to finish.
It was so satisfying!
