Interlocking Spiral Stick

This was probably one of the most complicated wooden pieces I have made. It was good fun though.
To make it, I carved two spirals opposite each other and slowly carved deeper and deeper until it broke through and made a hollow center.
I was inspired by someone at the Art of Mentoring who made this, so it’s not my idea. I also made a spoon with the same technique but I did not make it hollow as I thought it would be a little too fragile for everyday use.
