no i dont have a bent knife so i used the angle crinder small wheel to hollow out, the rest was done with the axe and knife. i found it quite relaxing, but the oak was tough to cut so next time i think i might use a softer wood.

Very nice, Oak is a sod to carve but that spoon should last you a life time.

It's an area I have been interested in getting into for a while, but you spin the bowl to go with them, don't you?
