I cannot emphasise the wellbeing I get from spending time in the woods and actually working there when I can. Few crafts give this much pleasure and walking out with a stool a chair or a wooden spoon gives memories that last a lifetime simply because this way of working touches all of the senses. Handwork in craft is always high demand in this way. There is no substitute for it and everyone I ever met that did this for the first time said “it was life enriching, life changing and long lasting.”
I hope you enjoy this one half as much as I did. We have a follow up video using some of these methods and combining them with some of my own that bring a different dynamic to the sphere of spoon carving.
