Took it out on a walk and sat down for 2 hours at a beautiful spot between Aber Castell and Trefin looking out over the sea, to do some finnish cuts and sanding. Later at home I treated it with Tung oil.

I’am trying my very best to get the design right, inspired by the traditional Swedish spooncarver Wille Sundqvist.
