Lovespoons by Squirrel-slayer Lovespoons by Squirrel-slayer
Well... My mother got married for second time last friday and, since I don't have a lot of money, I made this for her and her new husband as a wedding gift. I hope they will enjoy a lot of fun with them because it seems very difficult to eat with them:)
The spoons are made from basswood and impregnated with an olive oil. They are carved from one piece of wood, mostly with my Swiss army knife, I only used a small u-shaped chisel to deepen the eating part of the spoon, and "polished" with a sand paper. They are little bit massive; of course, they could be thinner and finer but basswood isn't very hard, so if they were thinner, somebody could easily bite off part of it:) (It happened to me - a friend of mine destroyed two of mine spoons (bought ones)). The top part of both spoons was supposed to be in a shape of a heart but the wood was too thin.
Actually, it is the first spoon I have ever carved... And also the second one:)

That's really good. Especially seeing how this is your first time making a spoon(s).

Thank you very much:) I tried to make a spoon long time ago but didn't have a patience, motivation and a good knife to finish it. So this is the first finished and successfull attempt:)

How did your parents think of the gift?

They liked it:) (Although, my mum's new husband isn't my parrent but it doesn't matter.) But of course, it was their wedding so they were happy about everything:) I am not sure if they are going to really eat with them but they will certainly find some use for them.

I don't think it would be too practical to use them to eat. Maybe for salad. :P
