After enjoying the process of making the first spoon so much, I decided to have a go at a second one. This time the wood was Jarra, and boy was it so much harder to work than the maple! It took nearly twice as long to make, even though I improved my methods this time around and used rasps and spokeshaves to do most of the shaping.
Halfway through I decided that this was going to be a ‘Man’s’ spoon, and the proportions echo that. It’s a bit of a beast actually!. Here it is next to the original one for comparison.
