After toilsome carving and sanding my first spoon made out from a block of applewood is now done! It’s not perfect – the applewood had two holes (finally 3 – one big on the top side at the handle and two little holes at the left side) which I didn’t see before I started, so I had to fill them with wood paste and glue. But all in all I’m very satisfied with the result and proud of it. After fine-sanding the spoon was oiled three times with walnut oil. So the slightly red tone and the beautiful texture of the wood comes out very nice.
