Medieval Spoon Carving

I enjoyed another great day up the woods today with my old mucker Hugo from BCUK, whilst we were up there he wanted to learn how to carve a Medieval style spoon, so that's exactly what we did.

Pictured are the two spoons we carved, the lower one is Hugo's the other is mine, he did pretty damned good in all honesty, this is not the normal style of spoon Hugo carves and it incorporates some cuts that he wasn't used to making, but he captured the basics really well, the spoon has a good shape and the handle is Octagonal, all he needs to do is spend some time refining the spoon so it has a narrower handle and he will be spot on, all in all a seriously good first attempt at a Medieval style spoon i thought.
