Questions & Comments
Today we have a comment from Phyllis who writes:
“Very nice blog about spoons Bob. I have carved a couple of decorative spoons but never a practical spoon. Last week I went to Fox Chapel’s warehouse and bought a book that was printed in 2020. The book is called “12 Spoons 2 Bowls and a Knife”. Eventually I hope to carve some practical spoons from this book. I hope everyone has a wonderful day and keep on carving.—-Phyllis”
Thank you for your comments and input on the new book about spoon and bowl carving. I have seen the book advertized but have not yet had a change to look at it. The title of the book is “12 Spoons 2 Bowls and a Knife.” My question is, are these all projects that can be done completely with a knife? I’ll be anxious to see some of the spoons you carve from the book!
