In this wood carving class students will use an axe, straight knife, and hook knife. Carving a spoon from green wood is more efficient than carving cured wood, and you get nice chips instead of sawdust in the process. Students will first learn how to axe out a spoon blank. They will also learn about the qualities of various wood species, wood grain, safe and efficient knife grips, and spoon design for use and aesthetics. At the end of the day students will have completed an eating or kitchen spoon.
