Introduction to Spoon Making

Everything you need to know to create your first wooden spoon

   Watch Promo

I made my first spoon over 10 years ago and I have been teaching others to do so for a lot of the time since. In this project, you will learn how to make a simple spoon from the branch of a tree using only a few simple hand tools. From knowing how to select your wood and where to find the spoon in it, to what tools you need and how to use them, I will guide you along every step of the way until you have your very own wooden spoon.
