What could be more appealing than taking a small branch from a tree in your garden and, with a few simple tools, making a wooden spoon to use in your kitchen or give to a friend? Carving this way is a very accessible hobby. The tools are reasonably priced, the raw material is everywhere (yes, it grows on trees!) and there is no need for a dedicated workspace. This book is an introduction to a set of knife and axe cuts that will help you use spoon carving tools effectively and safely. The teaching method is unusual in that it initially focuses on the skills needed to use the tools, rather than what you are making.
