Create the most personal of all kitchen utensils from wood you carve yourself.
Moa Brannstrom Ott, a Swedish woodworker, confesses that she carves her own spoons, forks, spatulas, and other implements for the comfort she derives from the process of discovering the qualities of a particular piece of wood as she shapes it.
In this handy little book she explains how to select the wood, how to mark the shape you want it to attain, how to choose the appropriate tools, and how to work safely and effectively as you remove what does not need to be there. Sketches help you visualize the process, and photos of Ott's own finished work inspire you to carve your own one-of-a-kind pieces.
