« Part 1: Keeping sanity in spoondum! Part 2 of Spoon carvers diary series Part 3: New spoon carving videos! »

Hey gang, I hope this short video tutorial may fit anyones interest that would like to see some of the steps in spoon making with hand tools.

Unfortunately I am my own camera operator so this will not include any action shots…lol. Please drop me a line if this is something that sparks an interest or was helpful in some way.

If you found this first video blog enjoyable, then I may possibly do a few more on various projects in the shop. Or if you have a request on something you want to see or a suggestion I will try to see what I can do regarding that.

Hopefully my correct settings have been adjusted so this video will play for all of you, if not please bare with me and I will correct accordingly.

As always I thank you for your time and inspiration!

Here goes my debut….lol.

Great video blog and for the first one I think it came off really well. What would have been good to do at the end…lay the spoon next to the untouched piece just to show the difference.

You are really doing a great job on these spoons and with all hand tools yet!

As you say…Keep on spoonin’ !

Well that was the best ten minutes I’ve spent in a long time. I really appreciate you taking the time to film and edit this Joe. I really enjoyed it. Maybe for a future project, you could make yourself a tripod and let up see some action shots. :o)

I would love to see more vids in the future if you have the time my friend. Thanks again.

Thanks so much gang for taking a look at the video. More will be on the way in the upcoming weeks!

Now as far as the hatchet goes, yes it is an awesome piece to use.

Here is the link where I got mine:

Drew Langsner is a great guy, give him a call at Country Workshops and ask if they still have the Hans Karlsson. He will fill you in on all or any details you need. Drew is a master country woodworker and knows the craft inside and out.

Once you use this hatchet you will never go back, it is a wonderful hand made tool as well as the additional sheath you can purchase for it. If you want to get serious about this work than look no further, give Drew a call he’s a great guy.
