Transform a block of wood into a beautiful kitchen utensil! A stunning and complete carving guide to creating functional and aesthetically pleasing wooden spoons, this must-have book features 15 skill-building projects that include a pie server, butter knife, honey dipper, coffee and flour scoops, and so much more. With clear, step-by-step instructions, detailed wood carving patterns, and materials lists, projects start off simple and slowly progress in difficulty so you can build your skills and accomplish the most challenging, final project. Also included are comprehensive overviews on sourcing green wood, roughing out, basic cuts, food-safe finishes, utensil care, and sustainable carving tips so you can learn everything you need to know before you begin spoon carving. Artistic and atmospheric photography elevates this project guide, as well as its emphasis on spoon carving as a way of life rather than just an occasional hobby.
