What we're about

Anyone interested in the craft of working wood with simple hand tools. That's not to say we'll work on simple projects. But I wanted to start a group based around enjoying the process of working local and exotic woods and keeping the projects accessible. I'm thinking about wood carving, whittling, box joinery, japanese joinery, spoon carving, kitchen utensils, and simple furniture. Instead of a production fabrication environment with deafening power tools and saw dust saturated air, I'd hope this group would get together, play a little music, and hang out carving, hand sawing, and chipping out truly one of a kind passion pieces.

All levels welcome.

LIMITED ATTENDEES: Spoon Carving: Green Wood, Carving Axe, and Knife

Creative Metal Fabrication

$95.00

After this introductory spoon carving class, the world of working wood safely – without toxic materials or loud messy machines – will be open to you. In this class, we’ll learn the techniques for carving spoons from green wood, using a hatchet, a straight knife and a hook tool. This work is some of the most exciting green woodworking happening today. Limited to two students per class, each student will have their own chopping block (wood stump), be supplied with a double-bevel hatchet, and a “sloyd” knife. Using freshly-cut birch, apple, cherry and other woods, each student will split their blank, hew it to shape, and finish carve their piece with a knife. You will receive one-on-one attention with demonstration and examples. Not only will you know how to make a good spoon, but you will be part of a group of carvers with regularly scheduled meetups to continue your project, start new projects, and hone your skills for working wood with simple hand tools in a beautiful Bushwick studio for a nominal cost. You need bring nothing but your enthusiasm for working with your hands and learning an age old craft passed down through the generations.

Green Wood Carving With Simple Hand Tools

Creative Metal Fabrication

$10.00

Carving green wood with simple hand tools. I'll have wood on hand, just let me know if you'd like a blank. Also a few axes and gouges and misc tools. What to bring? A knife. If you don't have one, I recommend a moraknife that you can pick up from the links below. Three different sizes: the 106 is the longest, 120 is shorter, and the 122 has a little different blade shape. I like the 106, but the 120 I think is a great starter. There is a $10 shop fee. After you RSVP I'll send you my venmo handle. Hope to see some more of you guys this weekend! 106: https://www.industrialrev.com/morakniv/craft-knives/wood-carving-106-m--106--1630?returnurl=%2fmorakniv%2fcraft-knives%2f 120: https://www.industrialrev.com/morakniv/craft-knives/wood-carving-120-m--106--1600?returnurl=%2fmorakniv%2fcraft-knives%2f%3fcount%3d45 122: https://www.industrialrev.com/morakniv/craft-knives/wood-carving-122-m--106--1654?returnurl=%2fmorakniv%2fcraft-knives%2f%3fcount%3d45
