A lot of pics of spoons get posted but not that many spatulas so I thought I'd post pics of a few I just finished up. Top is cherry, middle is basswood, and bottom is sassafras. In the kitchen, I typically use these more than spoons. :) Good drawknife projects.
Other than a few woodspirits here and there, I don't see much figure carving here. I'd love to see more figure carving at BCUK. They are a lot of fun to carve and not as difficult as some folks might think. It's a grand outdoor tradition, from Boyscout neckerchief slides to tribal art. A good...

This knife was designed with considerable feedback from Mors although it is...
Anyone here like to whittle doodads? One of my favorites is the ball in a cage. Here's a couple variations of that I recently finished.

The second is a ball (yolk) in an egg.
