From an early stage in my carving career I started experimenting with timber available locally from woodlands, hedgerows and orchards. The delicate design of this spoon called for a close grained hardwood capable of holding fine detail. Having read that hawthorn is used in the manufacture of bagpipes suggested its suitability and its ready availability made it a natural choice.
