Default Celtic Love Spoon

I finally got around to carving this yesterday. Still need to finish sand and apply the finish.

Gale - late and short affects a lot of us - that's quite the project - looks good and I bet "she" appreciates it

That's really nice. I think she'll probably forgive you and a little groveling won't hurt.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Gale,

Great looking project. If you could PM me the link to the thread on the vectric forum I would be most grateful.

The Mrs.has a couple we got in Wales 20 years ago, might be fun to make her another.

Very nice, Gale! As Charles said you will probably be forgiven but just in case a little groveling won't hurt.

The guys that kill me are the guys who can cut these by hand faster than I can set up and do it on the machine

I really like that, Gale!

Now tell me what a "love spoon" is used for...and if it's one of those "if you need to ask, you're too young to know" things, I'm OK with that.
