Carving my first spatula

Carving my first spatula - student project

I cut a small tree (ash tree I believe) in my private property with a simple saw, and started carving. Took me about 6h total I’d say, not sure. I didn’t buy anything for this class, I had knives, a saw, an axe, and sand paper.

I positively loved the whole experience! I’m happy with my spatula although it’s not as wide as I wanted it initially. The only thing I found difficult is I was clueless about when it was finished. Was it too big? Too heavy? Should I flatten the top? I oiled it now but I might refine it again later. 

Thank you so much Anne and Josh for this fun class! Very clear instructions and fun to watch. Now I want to carve more! It was the first time I carved wood in my life!
