Welcome to the spoon carving website of David Knight. That's me sitting on a shavehorse in the back garden with my daughter. I hope I will be able to share my enthusiasm for carving spoons from green wood with you.
The pleasure in spooncarving is in using small branches of freshly felled hardwood as material for carving useful products that are both functional and unique. The properties of so-called greenwood mean that the carving process is a joy and requires few tools and equipment. A chopping block, sharp axe, and a couple of knives are all you need to get started.
On the right is a kitchen spoon carved with a simple sloyd knife.
See the News page for details of my spooncarving courses with Cotswold Woodland Crafts. The next one is on Saturday 26 July 2014 at Prinknash Abbey, Gloucestershire.
See you at the Wytchwood Forest Festival Sunday 7th September 2014 at Cornbury Park, Charlbury, Oxfordshire OX7 3EH.
