Too many hobbies?
Carved this yesterday from an oak chip from our fire wood.
I cheated with the bowl of a spoon and used a Dremel. I did order a spoon knife and a gouge, but they were delayed by show storm – could not wait anymore… Felt rather cabin fiverish.
It’s 6” long. Not sure if oak is a good material for spoons. It’s rather hard to carve and has grain that looks like tiny “channels” that will soak up liquids. Well, I do have more different kings of wood saved up, just wanted to try something quickly without going to the barn to dig through my stash. And I need to buy some finishing oil.

How cool is that!? --- Nice going Kate. I just hope you can resist using it to scoop cement...it's much too nice for that.

Very pretty, Kate. Love the graceful arch in the handle.

Black walnut spoon. Wood was salvaged from our wood pile.

Thank you, Don and Jill.
I forgot to mention this is a "honest" spoon. My hook and caving knives and a spoon gouge finally arrived. So besides general shape being cut out with a band saw it's all hand carved.

We'll forgive you the use of the bandsaw...but just this once!

BTW...I Can't imagine trying to sharpen that curved blade.
