Spoon carving

Nick came to learn about spoon carving today and made a big, double-ended spoon from Sycamore and a Swedish-look, English Medieval style eating spoon from Silver Birch.

He already has quite high woodworking skills and a set of Frost spoon knives.

I showed him how to use the drawknife and shave horse, his brand new, virgin, unused Gransfors Carving Axe, the stock knife (see yesterday's post).

...and a chisel in the bench hook.

I been following your Blog and I must say I really love it.

I'd love to get a stock knife. I've seen them in books but havnt seen any for sale. I'm thinking this winter I might make one as a blacksmithing project

Hi Frontier Carpenter.
Thanks for the kind comment.
Yes, make one or perhaps adapt an old tool?
