Robert Frost Maple Carved Spoons - Part 2

The spoons are sanded, and ready for the pyrography.

I drew a maple leaf free-hand with a pencil, and then go over my outline with a 10-A handpiece using my Eagle Burnmaster. Once the outline is finished, I use a shading handpiece to darken around the leaf edge.

And here's a finished leaf on the handle.

The two spoons, front and back of the handle.

Two spoons, signed and dated on the back of the scoop.

Several coats of a hand-rubbed oil finish, every twenty-four hours, and ready for delivery!
