I'm going to have a go at making some more spoons. These are for cooking and being used, rather than decorative. We have some ash and sycamore in the garden that came from a couple of trees we had taken down. 

I cut a length off and then sliced some planks off, all with my Japanese saw:

I cut some more planks for later spoons:

The first planks was spun up on the lathe:

After a lot of chips, and about 40 minutes later or so (I didn't time it), we have a basic outline:

Then, the slow carving of the bowl:

To be continued (two more times)...
