Cherry Spoon

One of my favourite woods for carving is Cherry, not only does it carve well, but the grain patterns and deep rich colour you get with it, are, well, quite simply, stunning.

The spoon pictured was going to be a new eating spoon for myself, but during the carving, i discovered a larvae had made the cherry it's home, you can see the route it took at the top of the bowl, but rather than throw it away, i carried on with the spoon and will just use it for a bit of decoration around the house now.
