Spoon from Rhus typhina

I managed to get a fair sized piece of Rhus typhina from work, it has fantastic colours so I have so far made a spoon from it but I might make a small Kuksa from it.



I also made a couple more sugar spoons from Apple.

  6. These spoons are perfectly designed. Also, you used wood from Apple tree, right? Would it be ideal to create this spoon using chestnut tree?
