Here Comes The Sun : chip carved Rowan spoon


Eating spoon with off-centre shallow bowl carved from locally sourced Rowan wood.

EVERYONE I know will tell you I go ON and ON and ON about how wonderful Rowan wood is. It's lovely to carve, it looks stunning ... I just love it. Have I mentioned that?

This spoon from a radial cut log (the top of the spoon was facing out from the tree) shows off the growth rings and chocolate heart wood a treat. When the heart wood showing up the handle went off at a tangent it provided the perfect line to accentuate with some chip carving. Look closely and you can see the heart wood showing through the sap wood in the upper sun rays.
