Hawaiian Pepper Tree Burl wood Sculptural Spoon

In between large scale sculptures, I need to rest my arms and hands. Before I start my next project I like to warm up my arms and hands with making a sculptural spoon. Most of these spoons are made using exotic woods, some woods so expensive to use that sculpturing a spoons is the only affordable way to work with some of these woods. I normally keep these pieces for my own collection because the time and labor on these pieces would make them too expensive to market. Now I have too many and will be parting with some of these spoons.
