Those lovely folks @thegreenwoodguild sent me some posters. Thanks folks. If you're looking to improve your carving I'd recommend you seriously consider the Green Wood Guild online membership. The videos are excellent ... www.thegreenwoodguild.com
If you're just beginning your spoon carving adventure then I'd recommend you do a course... one if theirs if your in London or one of mine if you're around the Gloucestershire area. Videos and books make a lot more sense if you've done a course, it's pretty hard without.

Just in case you're getting to think I'm painting everything... well not quite and certainly not when it's as pretty as this #hedgerow #elm that was collected after being felled by highway maintenance.

Spoon carving thought for the day #1 Don't axe faster than your brain can aim.

The most common problem I see with beginners axe work is a frantic tapping. Small short strikes with the axe that are far too rapid to aim properly. Slow it down!
Give your brain time to aim your blows and time to see what happened and process the tactile feedback of your last strike.

Start a cut precisely with small strikes and then try to hit into the cut you've started, it'll help guide the axe precisely down your intended line.

Hope that helps.... comment if you have questions and I'll try to clarify. ... and this morning I'm breaking into my stash of blackthorn... #axework #spooncarving #learntocarve #slowdown #takeiteasy #relax #sloyd

Teaching aid for my eating spoon course. If the spoon bowl gets gently thinner towards the front where it has no prominent lip then it pops out of you mouth in a most delightful way. #learntocarve #spooncarving #spooncarvingcourse #craftcourse

My first attempt at a Barn the fig spoon, like on the cover of his book Spon, after watching @barnthespoon video at @thegreenwoodguild website. It's pretty average but I'll make a few and use them to better understand this form that's so different from the usual shape I make.

If you're serious about learning to carve awesome spoons invest in the online membership and watch the videos and carve the spoons. There's so many subtle curves and bumps to these little beauties that enhance the ergonomics as well as the aesthetics you really can't get this kind of detail from just looking at pictures.

Nice work Barn, well done you.

Let’s say my pumpkin had major issues this year #learntocarve
Coming this #WinterIntersession: Learn to carve wooden spoons of your own design with @anniemeyerstudio . Work on developing your personal style, then express it through the creation of functional or decorative spoons. Spend time thinking about how your spoon should look and feel. Cut the profile of your spoons out on the bandsaw. Learn how to hollow a bowl using gouges and mallets. Shape the body of your spoons using a variety of carving and shaping tools. Leave class with your very own small collection of handmade and sculpted spoons that are customized to your taste. #spooncarving #woodenspoon #learntocarve #massart #woodworking #onlyatmassart @massartboston

Just posted a new YouTube video on our channel. I did a demo carving some tiny letters using three different router bits. Then Vicki came on and showed our new shirts. Isn't she smoking hot in denim?
