    I appreciate the offer but this one belongs to my little girl. I would be happy to make you one though.

    I think this has sparked a new hobby, I am already looking at some more dedicated tools for spoon carving. My try a kuksa next, we will see.

    It is China Berry? One of the instructors at Bushcraft (Casey) had it, he had some really nice stuff carved out of it.

    Done two spoons so far. Wish I had time to do more.

    This one was done out of a piee of white oak.. Jeez it is a hard wood. My first one was done out of the bottom part of our 2016 Christmas tree! I thought it was a great way to bring back memories.
