Tips I'd give someone who has just realised they want to carve spoons

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
