Over the winter I took a liking to Youtube bush craft videos. Something about heading out in the woods with little more than the clothes on your back and a fixed blade in a sheath strapped to your belt looks like fun from the comfort of my recliner but I'd rather watch someone else to it on the internet than do it myself. Carving a spoon, yeah, now that's something I wouldn't mind trying.
I started with a chunk of split and dried birch from the wood pile. The outline on the wood was the general shape I had in mind for the spoon.
A couple hours later and progress is being made. I can tell you at this point my hands were sore and tired.
GLOVES! I should have put them on earlier. The spoon is taking shape.
