|Not a great picture, I know, but I had to make the most of the snow -|
it doesn't last for long here in the UK.
|The strange brown discoloration at the tip of the bowl is actually in the grain|
of the wood and adds a bit of character, I think.
|I'm not sure you can see it very well on the photo, but I have left a small swell |
on the underside at the end of the handle, which makes it a little nicer in the hand - tactile too.
Again, as it's a 'working' spoon - it's about the size of an average serving spoon - I have left it with a tooled finish. The bowl is fairly shallow and I really quite like the chamfered edge on the bowl.
I haven't used the spoon yet, it needs a few more weeks of drying really, and a further oiling, but I imagine it would work very well. Although the pointed tip of the bowl could prove to be a double edged sword - great for getting into the corners of pots, pans and jars; maybe a weak point that could break off with use.
