Coffee scoop and hillbilly

A few new carvings recently.  Debra wanted a new coffee scoop, so I made her two of them.

The scoop is carved from basswood, and finished with something called “butcher block conditioner”–a mix of beeswax and food-grade mineral oil.  I figured there wasn’t much sense in using an exotic wood for the scoop, as it’s going to get blackened from the coffee.  The bowl holds about a tablespoon.  The size comparison object is one of the new Presidential dollar coins.

This little hillbilly (about 3½ inches tall) is carved from a maple scrap.  Very hard wood.  I think I’ll stick to softer woods for my caricatures in the future and save the harder woods for things like dolphins and other forms that have fewer fine details.
