This course is designed for beginner woodworkers or those new to hand tools. You don’t need many tools or much experience to successfully make a spoon. However, you will gain great insight into the tools and how to work wood in the process of making it.

Here are the tools and equipment you will need:

*You can use a wide variety of woods, avoid exotic woods because they can be toxic and can also give off a flavour when cooking. Also avoid woods that are very porous (such as oak), which can absorb foods and juices and can be difficult to clean.

Here are some suggested woods that work well:

  • Sycamore
  • Beech
  • Maple
  • Ash
  • Elm
  • Poplar
  • Cherry
