Spoons and small wooden objects

I’ve developed an interest in green woodworking. Especially in spoon carving. I don’t especially care about spoons in particular; it’s just a form to explore. Working with green wood is interesting, though. There is so much left to chance in green wood. It’s soft, so it’s easier to carve, and it’s a simple, meditative joy. It’s also more likely to spoil after the fact. After all the work, it still has to dry, and it just might crack when it does. There is a lesson there, a bit of Zen.
