Thanks for your kind words.
I’m always looking for information to pass along that will help promote the art of carving. This Ask Joe column has been a learning experience for me. One thing I’ve learned is there are many different ways of doing the same tasks. The technique I shown was one I used when I was carving Love Spoons. Love Spoons were part of my inventory when I was working the arts and crafts shows. One show about 20 years ago a lady bought my whole display board with all the spoons on it. It took that show over the top money wise but I haven’t carved a spoon since. I really enjoy seeing a well designed spoon.
