Big Spoon

maple spoon

I carved this serving spoon/ladle from a red maple branch a friend of mine had cut. It had a beautiful curve to it which I followed with the spoons shape.  Red Maple is sometimes called soft maple, and it is when compared to Sugar Maple, though its still pretty hard.  Red Maple can get brown streaks in it as you see here. Sometime they occur throughout a section of wood and is referred to as ambrosia maple by woodworkers.
