*ONLINE* Spoon Carving Series: Poplar Spoon!

As part of a series of virtual carving classes, This Zoom based class will get you started down the path of spoon carving and whittling away the hours. Keep your hands busy creating a beautiful and useful spoon of your own. Learn and practice working with a gouge to hollow out the bowl of your spoon and a whittling knife to bring its shape to life. We will discuss, demonstrate and practice proper tool sharpening and safe work habits, essential to the enjoyment of carving.

This class is designed for beginners who are interested in continuing their carving independently. The class will consist of two Zoom meetings to get you acquainted with your new tools give you time with and without instruction to complete your project.

The project this season is a big spoon in a harder wood! Jump into carving a harder and more durable wood: Poplar. A blank for this project will be included in your kit for a material fee of $10 on top of the cost of class tuition.

In addition to the class fee, an option will be given to purchase a beginner's spoon carving kit for 85$. The kit is curated by the instructor and consists of a straight blade, spoon gouge, safety gloves, sharpening kit, and a bench hook. This kit will be a mainstay for all following virtual carving classes with Sawtooth. If you already have our carving kit or your own tools, you can skip this step.

Blanks and tool kits are available for pick-up at Sawtooth. If you are not able to pick up your kit and/or blanks, please select the shipping option for an additional $15.50 while registering.
