I received my crooked knife ( a knife bent sideways) earlier this week. It meant that I could finish off the spoons I'd already shaped. Working with dried wood is certainly harder than green wood! I also need  to ensure that the wood dries slowly as one of my spoons was showing signs of splitting. Apparently keeping the wood in an open paper bag for about a week is a good way to dry it out.
I'm now looking forward to trying some bowls and cups. They're bigger tasks but should be good fun. I look forward to posting some images of my finished work on here soon.
