Axe & Knife Skills: Carving Spoons & Spatulas
Make wood chips fly as spoons and spatulas come to life. Students will learn how to split, rough out, and shape a freshly cut log using wedges, an axe, a drawknife and shaving horse, a carving knife, and a hook knife. Ergonomic axe-carving techniques require endurance and patience, so ample time during the class will be spent practicing. Discussion will include form and function, finishing techniques, and tool sharpening.
