Rhododendron serving spoon.

I finished the Rhododendron serving spoon mid week but didn't get the time to take some pics until now. Its 330mm long so its a nice big serving spoon, its made from a crook branch so it has a very nice shape to it and because the grain runs right through the spoon it is strong.

I carved a pot hook on the back of the spoon for hanging the spoon on the rim of the pan, I like carving these pot hooks but haven't made any big spoons with a pot hook for a while so I enjoyed carving this one.
Rhododendron is a nice wood to carve a lot like Magnolia, pale and creamy colour and finishes well from the knife.
