Firmly Rooted: Wood spon made from Hard Maple root stock

The stock for this spoon was a chance discovery where pool excavation had previously unearthed the roots of surrounding Hard Maple trees. Only the bowl of this spoon is carved (from a knob-like portion, possibly a burl) while the balance is the root, as found, including broken off end.
