New Spoon Carving

I've decided to start carving a new spoon.

To make it interesting I'm going to try carving as much as I can with a Busse Fat Fusion Battle Mistress (not a carver by any stretch of the imagination.)

At .32" thick it will be a challenge but it has worked fantastically this morning for hogging off wood to rough out the shape and my convex sharpening is good enough to carve the detail around the bowl of the spoon.

I'm carving well-seasoned wood so cracking, checking, or splitting should be a non-issue.

I probably have 20 minutes into this project so far and will update you as I progress.

Thanks for reading,
