    My friends sit with a book in the mornings while we're holidaying but I like to whittle while I have my coffee.

    I took a rough axed billet of cherry with me and then from that point on just slowly removed the bits that didn't suit with a knife or two.

    I love the grain in the bowl of your spoon! Beautiful!

    Thanks.

    Cherry is a tough wood to carve but worth it. The smell is great too!

    Superb carving! Cherry does make for a lovely spoon.
    Interesting baguette carving - is that technically a breadspirit?

    You're probably right! It was impressive how solid it was to carve!!
