Laburnum Spoon

I've never carved laburnum before, but it made a nice change from the lighter birch and sycamore that I've been using recently. The grain in it is beautiful, but I actually found it to be a bit distracting, making the lines harder to follow. It's a shame that I couldn't leave a bit more of the sapwood in. I've been thinking about photography recently and so I thought I'd have a bit of a play with something different to the obligatory spoon on a stump.
