Spoon in the Forest

Tres Piedras.
New Mexico

One day while taking Beans for a walk we came upon this wood spoon lying in among the pine needles of the forest floor.  Beans finds a lot of things for me.

I got to thinking if I could carve a spoon from wood.  Nearby was a ponderosa pine blown apart in half from a lightening strike sometime in between our visits to this place.  I selected a piece which will be my project.  Now don't expect this to happen anytime soon but success or failure, at some time I will show the end result of my effort.  I already know I will have to buy a curved knife to create the bowl of the spoon, but that's a long way off from now.
