BARN'S BOOK

I am excited to announce that my book is now ready for pre-order, the book shares some of my thinking on trees and wood culture, with a basic "how to" section showing the techniques i use and a load of information about the beautiful tools of the trade. This is followed by 4 chapters covering 16 styles of spoons going into more detail about how to make them and why they are designed that way all supported with glorious photos including 3 profile shots of each spoon to help you make them. This book should prove interesting and useful to anyone who loves trees and wood, cooking and spoons, or the art of Spoon Carving itself!
