Box Wood Spoon

Latest carving effort, this time in Boxwood, now this stuff might be sought after by wood turners but it's horrible to carve, it splits and splinters like no tomorrow, and even when green it's like carving iron, but hey it was free and despite the difficulties in carving it, it's worth it for the grain patterns alone, well i think so.
