Lilac Spoon

New one to me is Lilac wood, i made a trip to the wood yard up the lane on Saturday and found three pieces of this stuff sitting on top of the log pile, having never used it, i thought i take some and give it a try.

Now this wood dense, more so than Box id say, especially when wet, but it is an absolute dream to carve, the finish you get straight off the knife is glassy and very tactile, the spoon pictured is only roughed out, i need to let it dry for a few days before fine carving it to a finish.
