Having been making pendants out of horn and bone lately, I decided to try a different material. Many years ago my brother gave me a lump of Kauri Gum its sat on my fireplace for over 20 years, yesterday I thought I would have ago at making a small pendant out of some of the Kauri, it turned out reasonably well.
Today, I sharpened my knives and decided to carve a spoon out of some nice Cherry wood I have had around for some time. Its amazing how quickly you get out of the rhythm of carving, its been a long time since I cut the wood. Eventually I knocked out a quite nice tablespoon for the kitchen.
