SPOON CARVINGE. J. OSBORNE Book Number: 86457 Product format: Hardback
With only three basic tools, an axe, a straight-edge knife and a crook knife, it is possible to transform a small tree branch into a simple, beautiful and useful object for daily life. From a cooking spoon to a coffee scoop, the act of whittling, peeling and planning wood is absorbing and meditative, surrendering to the joy of slow making, thinking and living. Essentials cover green wood, a kit list, using the knives and axe, preparing wood, splitting branch wood, splitting logs, and then projects include a spatula, hanging jar spoon and bent-branch spoon. Big colour photographs and close-up instructions, 144 large pages.
