Crafting a spoon from freshly harvested wood involves a substantial understanding of wood properties and grain, as well as the use of sharp tools. It can be an especially challenging and satisfying endeavor, requiring more effort than may be immediately apparent.

Many novice spoon carvers are unsure where to start; from identifying the necessary tools and wood to holding a knife correctly and transitioning from handle to bowl. Even experienced spoon carvers can encounter questions such as how to design a pleasing and comfy spoon or how to monetize their work.

Greenwood Spoon Carving provides an in-depth examination of the art and craft of spoon carving through the guidance of professional spoon carver Emmet Van Driesche. Van Driesche has compiled a comprehensive guide, covering topics ranging from tool selection to sharpening to setting up a shop to marketing your work. It is the most comprehensive and comprehensive source of information on the craft available.

Packed with color photos, Greenwood Spoon Carving brings to life the simple pleasure of carving a unique piece from raw greenwood. From novice to expert, it can be a captivating journey of self-expression and appreciation for nature. This time-honored craft guides readers on an adventure to craft a beautiful, one-of-a-kind treasure.
