    This one is made out of Sycamore. As it was drying, it became harder, and harder....
    I finish it with salad bowl, then some walnut oil. It is about 14 inches in length--good for those who misbehave at the table.

    Like it a lot - especially the increase in depth to the handle, so it sits nice and level.

    However!!!

    I know I have been burdened having been born and raised in Texas, hindered in my cognitive development by having matriculated at Texas A&M, and I know my Achilles' heel is ultimately residing in backwoods, podunk Tennessee. But dagnabbit, that shore looks like a spoon to me and not a fork!

    A spokeshave, and a really nice spoon knife from www.deepwoodsventures.com. He is real nice to deal with, Any questions, feel free to ask me as well. They are really nice quality knives, and I know several folks who have purchased from him. Even a few in our carving club.

    Oh how lovely it must be
    to be born from a sycamore tree
    as I lay there dying
    Marty said I was drying
    a spoon is to be my destiny
    and pictures of me posted on WB
