Spoon carving and kuksa carving from a bushcraft perspective.
Beautiful work Jon.....very inspiring!Keith
Jon, how did you get the wood to curve the way you did with the spoon/ladel that's on this thread? Did you just eye it and work from experience? Same with the fish. Any tips on carving wood into a curve would be greatly appreciated. -Jeffrey

Hi Copeau.You'll get there eventually I'm sure.Best wishes from sleepy Dartmoor... J
Jon you do wonderful work that has inspired me to try my hand at spoons and kuksa. Having now done a few I clearly see the challenges and learning curve involved with reading the wood and manipulating the self-limited number of tools. I truly admire you and others that have put in the time and study to produce beautiful, functional work.
Great to hear from you Tad. I'm very pleased there are folk out there willing to take up the challenge of kuksa carving. It means this art form will survive. Best wishes from sleepy Dartmoor.... J
