The Urban Woodsman A Modern Guide To Carving Spoons, Bowls and Boards

"'Carving allows the simple pleasure of being in touch with the outdoors and learning how to make use of our natural resources.'

Working wood is something that everyone can do; you just need to have a starting point and a desire to learn. With just a few simple tools, Max Bainbridge, of Forest + Found, shows you how to create spoons, spatulas, butter knives, boards and bowls - tactile objects that are as beautiful to look at as they are to use.

Each project is accompanied by step- by- step photography, plus detailed advice on sourcing local timber for free (or next to nothing), hand grips, cutting techniques and ways to achieve the perfect finish- how to sand, ebonise, scorch and texture surfaces, as well as waxing and oiling. Whether you are a novice or an experienced carver, this book will inspire you to make something of which you will be truly proud."
