Spoon carving

I’ve always had a fascination with wood, grain and trees; it’s exciting to combine it all by carving. I began studying this craft 2017 to use up wood that I was removing from garden clearances (with permission).

I’ve been using different resources to expand my carving knowledge. A few of my favourite carvers for tips/tricks/instruction are:

  1. Barn the spoon
  2. Spoonesaurus by Matt White and Emmet Van Driesche
  3. Spoon carving with Tom

Tools for the job:

  1. Mora 106 carving knife
  2. Robin Wood hook knife
  3. Axe
  4. Sharpening kit inc. sandpaper, Tormek and leather/suede strop

Wood for carving should be green and soft. I prefer carving with birch, cherry and have used apple.

I like to try and make different spoons e.g. cooking, scoops, eating, spatulas, coffee, serving. It’s interesting to draw and design the shape.
