Teaching someone who knows the correct and safe use of tools is always a pleasure as you can watch them knowing that they are safe, and also they can be more receptive to what they want to achieve.
This makes them more focused and the course can be tailored around their needs.
A great day and productive too.
The spoon on the right is a spoon that I carved as a demo spoon as a recap at the end of the day. Now I have never timed myself making a spoon but It must have taken me under 10 minutes to carve from a flat billet.
I promised to finish the spoon as a gift as she liked it, once it was dry it needed a few finishing cuts in order to achieve a smooth finish.
And the finished spoon ready to put in the post.
