The Spoon from the Black Lagoon

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Or, what to do with a spoon gone bad? In this case, I was trying to carve a ladle, ran into a bark inclusion which broke the neck. The “spines” are bamboo skewers used as dowels to hold the piece together. The finish is water colors covered by Watco Dark Walnut top coated with shellac. The base is a chuck of spalted red oak planed with a scrub plane to leave a “rippled” surface. It is finished with BLO and shellac.
