    Red face A Special Oak Spoon

    On a visit to Wistman's Wood (Dartmoor) I picked up a piece of dead Oak and made a spoon.



    The spoon is more ornamental than practical; more of a reminder of that special place steeped in myth and legend, I know the wood is ancient - the original wood that would have covered all of Dartmoor at some stage.

    Every mile on a river takes you further from home than every hundred miles on a road.

    I hope thats a birchbark canoe in your pocket.... - I guess i should give some credit to Metal Mug

    Not sure to be honest - When your sat happy in Wistman's Wood whittling, fog all around you, you easily loose track of time ... maybe 30-45mins? maybe more, I'm not sure.

    Beautiful work Ash. I gather the Oak wasn't all that bad to carve then? Have an Oak tree in my small patch of woods that dropped some branches thinking of doing a couple spoons from it maybe even a Kuksa
