A Simple Wooden Spoon

It's been awhile since I've posted anything here, and I hope in the near future I'll be posting some worthwhile stuff but life is getting in the way.
I did make it to a little strip of woods and harvested some Bass Wood today for some carving and hearth boards.  This is the first spoon I've carved in quite some time, in fact It's the first one I've carved green. I decided to try and leave the bark on.

I did give it a coat of flax seed oil hoping it doesn't dry out to quick and crack, and once it dries some I'll sand it more and coat it again.

Stay safe

I wonder how well the bark will hold up.

Nice! I'm going to show this to my little boys (both 7) in the morning. They got the idea today to make spoons. They made their first ones today from spruce, and quickly decided that birch will be used for their next experiment. We don't have the right tools yet, but your post will motivate them, nonetheless.
Life has been getting in the way of my blog, as well, but I hope to return to it very soon.

Take care,
