Sycamore Snuff Spoon with a Dramatic Shape

After carving a couple of fairly simple snuff spoons out of zebrawood, I figured it was time to break out the sycamore and carve a snuff spoon with more of a dramatic shape.  I have the handle and overall shape more of a swooping feel, and gave it a graceful tapering bowl.  Of course the real star of the spoon is that sycamore wood-grain.  Sycamore is often used for inlaid wood due to its natural color and translucent appearance.  And, the shape of the spoon really shows off the grain of this particular piece of sycamore.  As usual, click on any of the photos below to enlarge it.
