bog oak form Lithuania

Some time ago I bought bog oak wood from Lithuania. I made some chashaku from this timber earlier. Time has come to make a scoop from it. This particular timber is on the soft side of the spectrum as for the hardness is concern but the wood is very beautiful and this should not be problem for caring person. This piece of wood has a live edges which I preserved and just enhanced with steel brush. I like how the profile came out and again as before I would like to mimic this in the
future. Working with bog oak is quite like working with coal, it has similar smell and you have black dust everywhere :)
