Yew plank giant spoon rack.

Normally my spoons just go on a table at shows and demos, but space is running out now there's a load more shapes to choose from. 

I had this section of damaged milled timber saved for making a bow, but there was lots of twisting in the sap wood and a lot of grain to chase, so I finally made my mind up and turned it into something useful :)

All done with hand tools, It'll sit on top of a wooden trestle table, and I might make another one to sit on this one yet for my decorated spoons. There should be some room for the kuksas, bowls, and bark containers too, although it seems a shame to cover up the grain. I just love Yew wood.
