SPOON CARVING with CURTIS BUCHANAN & ELIA BIZZARRI
Through the magic of the internet, Curtis joined me to teach his unique spoon carving technique. I started a 5-year apprenticeship with Curtis in 2002, but we had never taught together before this class. He’s one of my favorite humans.
First we whittle a blank, then boil it in a pot, bend it, then carve a serving spoon. We talk about materials and tools as we go and we laugh a lot. $20 suggested purchase price (includes scaled drawings of the spoon).or

Fairly flat gouge (maybe #3-3/4″ or so)
