Sycamore (the English version a maple – Acer pseudoplantanus, not American sycamore a plane – Platanus occidentalis) is a lovely wood to carve and dries hard and durable. It was the wood of choice for Welsh Cawl spoons and for clog soles in Wales. It can have pretty flecking and spalts nicely but is often quite plain and I like to decorate it with either milk paint or chip carving.

    Length: 17cm (6 3/4 inches)
    Bowl width: 4.5cm
    Bowl length: 6cm
    Finish: hemp seed oil

    A sycamore eating spoon with my special red and black milk paint finish, folks at Spoonfest called them lavaspoons and the name has stuck.

    The milk paint is applied thickly and sanded back to reveal the raised points on the facets. The final rub down is with 0000 wire wool and gives a super smooth finish that is just lovely to hold.
