Boxedler and Oak
The boxedler spoon turned out very nice with a section of bark left on the bowl. I was able to keep a significant portion of the red grain typical in this wood. Sometimes I am forced to carve out the red while creating a spoon.
The red oak was tough as nails. It was old firewood that was dry and very hard. Even after soaking for several days it was like carving steel.
Both spoons turned out great. I decided to keep the boxelder one as part of my ever growing personal collection. Someday I hope to have enough to display them publicly somewhere.
