For all those looking for this much sought-after handbook, the wait is over. Originally published in 1990 and out of print for almost 10 years, Swedish Carving Techniques by Wille Sundqvist has enjoyed cult status among carvers and craftsmen and is widely considered the bible of spoon carvers. Now a brand-new issue, just like the 1990 version, can be yours. In an honest, straightforward style, Wille Sundqvist shares his love for basic hand tools and the practical objects they can produce from branches, burls, and crooked pieces of wood. He brings this simple art to life by showing you carving techniques, tips for designing spoons for maximum strength, how to shape dough bowls, butter paddles and ladles, techniques for adding decorative detailing and safety tips for enjoying this age-old craft.

This is one of the best books on spoon carving that I have seen. It has a large focus on good hand tools and ways to use them. It is also for people that want to make usable spoons and bowls. I am a spoon carver of 10 years and highly recommend this book.
