Default Going to the Dogs!

Dogwood, that is.
Here is my latest offspring... 14.5” Dogwood carved spoon finished with Mineral Oil.
This youngster has a mind of its own. Instead of standing true and proud, this guy decided to stray from the straight and narrow. The handle has bowed to one side since carving....seems as I carved material from the handle, it released some ingrown tension resulting in this curvature. There was a knot nearby and the grain in this area is the cause of the movement.
I could call this one a reject and toss aside but it is my kid so he is unique, special, and has a personality of his own.
This afternoon we are attending a Super Bowl party at a new neighbors house and this is a “Welcome to the ‘hood” gift for them.
