Carving a spoon from a block of wood that you freshly cut is rewarding and challenging though many would-be spoon carvers don’t know where to begin.
This gorgeous publication from the Mortise and Tenon stable, written by professional spoon carver Emmet Van Driesche, is a comprehensive and stunning guide that deep dives into the art and craft of spoon carving.
With clear step-by-step instructions, expert techniques, and valuable insights into the philosophy behind the craft, Van Driesche’s many years of experience as a teacher and carver shine through.
It includes chapters on everything from tool selection, sharpening, to even marketing your results for sale.
Beautifully illustrated with hundreds of full-colour photographs, it will not fail to inspire you to pick up a piece of green wood and a sharp blade and give it a try. We agree that it is the most thorough and informative guide to the craft available and more rewarding than scrolling through those countelss uninspiring You-Tube videos.
