Ash Spoon

I had a bit of a "disagreement" a little while ago with a lady who was absolutely adamant that Ash (Fraxinus excelsior) was useless for carving things such as spoons and cups as it was 'too fibrous' to be any good.

So i decided to prove her wrong by carving this small eating spoon from a small Ash branch, I've also carved her a Kuksa to go with it and will take great delight in presenting these to her at some point in the near future.


  1. cheers Gorges, it's a sod to work when it's seasoned, but worth it for the grain paterns, thankfully this piece was fresh cut and easy to work

  2. Your such a good carver. Wish I had half your skill mate.

  3. cheers mate, wish i was as good as you at the hand drill
