@mmccoll nice spoon, are you in texas?
Thanks, I live in Tucson Arizona in a neighborhood that has plenty of Mesquite trees. Hopefully the trimmings from these trees will be a future resource for small projects.

I have not been doing any woodworking this summer and I haven’t been here on the forum for quite some time either. But notes from a couple friends, thanks Ken and Steve, and Paul’s recent blogs about spoon carving lit the fire again. So today I dug out a small piece of cherry and fashioned an eating spoon. Making spoons is very relaxing, there is almost no way of making a mistake. Just go with the flow. The decoration is a technique that I’ve been wanting to try for some time now, kolrosing. Incise your pattern with a sharp knife, rub in powdered coffee and oil as usual. Very simple to do and the possibilities are unlimited. Thanks for looking.
Hey Greg, Glad to see you back! I wasn’t sure what kolrosing was and found a good article how the technique is done.
This helped me and hope it helps other.
