Welcome Geoff, if you put your mind to it, you can carve just about anything. Just need to want to bad enough! Spoons are always a great pleaser, so many designs and shapes, and if you use figure wood, they look so much nicer.

Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, I'd like to pipe: "Up Spirits" or "Splice the Main Brace" .....................one more time.
