2010 - 13 Buckthorn ladle

Buckthorn is an interesting wood.  I did not know it even existed until the first spoon gathering in Mn.  It does not appear to grow in Nebraska.  It has many colors, but I appreciate the various orange colors most.  This is another very large spoon.  The bowl has tiger stripes which is rare and really pops the spoon.

Buckthorn is a favorite spoon carving wood in Mn.  It is strong, has interesting grain, and finishes well.
