What Color is Your Rainbow?

I stumbled on this site, after reading another woodturner's blog. I took the quiz, "What Color is Your Rainbow." This is my result. What's your color?

Your rainbow is shaded indigo and green.

What is says about you: You are a proud person. You feel strong ties to nature and your mood changes with its cycles. Friends count on you for being honest and insightful. Those around you admire your fresh outlook and vitality.">Find the colors of your rainbow at

What's on the carving table 7/09

As many of you know, I love to carve, spoons mostly. If you've visited my webpage and read the Artist's Statement, this will sound familiar. There is almost nothing more satisfying to me than sitting outside in the evening with a block of wood and a hand-held carving tool; it is a simple but gratifying pleasure.

I'm experimenting with some different designs. Here's what I'm working on this month, a black walnut ladle. I imagine it to be decorative only, because of the bead at the bottom of the scoop. I also intend to carve a stand that will compliment and mirror the design of the ladle itself. These take a long time to make; from this point, it's a lot of sanding by hand. When the ladle is done, I'll post the finished product.
