I worked on something last weekend that I'm pretty proud of, and if you follow me on Facebook or Instagram then you probably already know what I'm sharing today. If you missed my Goals for 2014 post a few weeks ago, my main focus this year is to push myself creatively and try new things. I also hinted that I was hoping to try some woodworking projects as well and last weekend I was able to cross one of those projects off of my list!!!
One of my co-workers gave me a piece of cherry wood a few weeks ago. The color of the wood is gorgeous and the grain is just beautiful. I used a piece of that cherry wood to........................................
Carve a SPOON!!!
I still can hardly believe I carved that myself from a simple piece of wood.
It was amazing watching it take shape as I worked.
This might sound a bit silly, but I walked away from this project feeling empowered. I'm not really sure why, I mean, it's just a spoon, right? But knowing I carved it with my own two hands was a pretty incredible feeling.
Just look at that grain!!!
I am so excited to get started on my next spoon!!!!
