Welcome to the spoon carving website of David Knight. That's me sitting on a shavehorse in the back garden with my daughter (she's a bit older now, as am i!). I hope I will be able to share my enthusiasm for carving spoons from green wood with you. These pages are created using Sandvox web creation software on a mac.
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 green wood 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 this page 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 25 April 2015 at Prinknash Abbey, Gloucestershire.
A hig hello to everyone who came to see me demonstrating at the Wychwood Forest Festival on Sunday 7th September 2014 at Cornbury Park, It was really enjoyable to talk with the folk who dropped by. I had a ball!
I'll be demonstrating again on Sunday 19 October 2014 at Combe Mill, the Victorian steam- and water-powered sawmill which was part of the Blenheim Palace Esstate as part of their woodcraft event. See you there!
