Serving spoon carved from Holm Oak with axe & knife.
This spoon is an absolute beauty. Holm Oak is an unusual wood, a hybrid of Oak & Holly, 'Evergreen Oak' its sometimes called. The wood is dense, tough and durable. Incredibly hard to work by hand.
Once carving is finished, the spoon is baked in an oven to darken and bring out the amazing 'rays' running through the wood.
A real keeper this one!
Finished with foodsafe flaxseed oil.
