comment Best/safest wood to carve a spoon from?
@RussellSteen, I mean sambucus nigra. There are only 2 species in our country, and sambucus nigra can be very easily distinguished and is the only common species. He used some oil on it, but it was just to make the wood more resistant.

comment What things should I look for when buying a compass?
You should look for the possibility to arrest the magnetic needle - that compass would be more resistant to failures.
