    Welcome from Florida, Michael. You will find some very accomplished spoon artists here and they seem to really enjoy sharing tips and ideas. Sadly, not all of us seem to catch on as quickly as we'd like.

    Oh and after you get the hang of spoons you might want to really test yourself and try your hand at a Coffee Boat. Bet you didn't know those were even a thing...did you. Stick around and you will discover a lot that will amaze you. :)

    I put some links below to whet your appetite. ;)

    Coffee Boat
    Carving thread and coffee boats are mentioned


    These are a few places but there are many more. Hope you enjoy it here!

    Welcome.

    I haven't tried to carve a spoon but I can make sticks pointy with one of the knives I've bought since I joined. :)

    Welcome,

    Grew up in rural Humboldt County, settled in Washington State. I remember, as a teenager, driving 5 hours down to the Bay Area to go to the big city.

    Welcome from MN. This is a pretty demanding crowd...they get a bit edgy when you don't post pics of your work.
