salad service in maple and and a soups poon in local whatever-wood

I woke up thursday morning this week and decided to do a self portrait.
This weekend, i set forth on making a salad service set from some maple offcut that Lawrence Gandsey gave me. Not sure about the "fork". one could charitably say it evokes tulips but i think you could also say it evokes bart simpson.
Also had one last piece of street-side wood from urban pruning. this one's eating size
The maple is pretty hard to carve with my gouges and sloyd knives, so i bandsaw "blanks" and then beaver out the bowl with a forstner bit in a hand drill. good labor saver
i pencil in different "finger" patterns for the fork. still figuring this out.
