I've had a good year and have carved a good variety of subjects. On this post, I carved a spoon from Cherry wood that was cut down last year. It was still a little green so it wasn't to hard to carve with a knife. I wanted some movement in the handle and I wanted to try some chip carving. Before carving the chip cut I took a small chip out of each center. It helped relieve the wood and the chip cut was easier. The spoon is a little other 8 inches long. I wish everyone a happy and prosperous New Year.
