I've made a few spoons from wood, but they all were really simple and not well done.
This is my first try for a decorated spoon. The morning I decided to make it, I went out to the forest and found out it has been raining :-D So I spent a lot of time and chose a stick that would look neither rotten nor soaking with water. Unfortunately some part inside was rotten anyway and it went off during carving.
I usually keep the spoon on the stick as long as possible and cut it off as the last step so that I could hold it better. I traced the design with a roller pen and after carving removed the marks with a chisel. I'm looking forward to make the next one from proper dried wood :)
