By the Light of the Silvery Moon

Another show-and-tell, our second attempt at carving spoons.

On the left is Rog's wonderful thin spoon. It looks delicate, but the buckthorn is very strong, hard wood. The end of the handle flattens out vertically (like  a muskrat tail, my friend Vera exclaimed) but you can't really see that in the photo.

The sturdy spoon on the right with the undulating handle is mine. I am very pleased  by how it fits my hand, not to mention the sensually smooth texture of the wood.
