Spoon carving tools giveaway competition

COMPETITION CLOSED

and the winner is……..Richard Eadon
Submitted on 2015/02/13 at 7:15 pm an email on it’s way. Thanks everyone else for playing along.

 

Would you like a gorgeous set of woodcarving tools for free? Well here is your chance. My spoon carving tools starter kit proved incredibly popular in the run up to Christmas. The axes have been out of stock for a while but the great news is they are back, or will be next week. I promised I would give the first axe of the next batch away but I am going one better and giving away one of my spoon carving started kits. These are the three tools that you need to set spooncarving, a razor sharp axe, straight knife and curved knife for hollowing the bowl. The kits are normally great value at Β£82 plus P&P but this one is completely free. All you have to do is make a comment in the comments box below the blog post here and it would be great if you would share the post on your social media facebook etc. Thanks. The competition runs until next Tuesday night (12pm GMT) and I will post the kit to the randomly picked winner as soon as I have the axes which may Be Wednesday. If you sign up for my newsletter or subscribe to my blog then you’ll be around for future giveaways and be the first to hear of new tools and woodworking projects. Good luck and happy carving. If you miss out or would like to buy a kit anyway they are available hereΒ 

IMG_0035The give away includes free worldwide shipping and is only open to folk over 18.

Having set this off I now realise I have to approve each post and am not going to be around for much of the weekend, don’t worry if your post does not appear straight away, they are all saved and will all appear when I am back at the computer.

    Looks great Robin! Long time fan; I found out about you years ago through the Bowl Turning Techniques Masterclass by Tony Boase. I really like the faceted handles on your axe and hook knife. I’m using Del Stubbs knives right now, and I love the fine handles he uses, but the more I use tools the more I like faceted handles.

  5. Steve Kubien February 13, 2015 at 6:24 pm #

    This is most generous of you Robin. I’d love to win because then I could share my tools with more folks who want to give spooning a go but are intimidated by the cost.

    Cheers,
    Steve

  89. Ellen Mulcrone February 13, 2015 at 6:53 pm #

    Oh a carver I dream to be,
    right now only a fantasy.
    A couple of spoons within branches I have found,
    discovered the crook (now worn to the ground).
    Finance and studies are two current preventions,
    from my creative carving inventions.
    For this reason and the beauty of these tools that i see,
    here on this website carved so perectly,
    I wish to be successful in receiving such a delight;
    With these tools, the thought of I, a carver, is in sight….

  90. Eleanor February 13, 2015 at 6:53 pm #

    My Mrs would love a set of these, she used to really enjoy whittling in the ‘Girl Guides’ and the ‘Rangers’ when she was little.

    If I don’t win this for her I will have to get a mini forge up and running as I know she’s going to need a carving set soon, just hope I’m up to the challenge of forging our own tools πŸ˜€

  143. Philip Ancliffe February 13, 2015 at 7:08 pm #

    Great looking set of tools Robin

  144. Wendy Maurice February 13, 2015 at 7:08 pm #

    i am enjoying my new craft of spoon carving and have promised one for each member of my family. I could really use a different curved knife.

  145. Todd Clark February 13, 2015 at 7:08 pm #

    Beautiful tools.

  146. Max Levy February 13, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    Oh my gosh! What a dreamy kit! I’d become a spoon factory!!

  147. Mark Angelini February 13, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

  148. Will Poyntz February 13, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    Enough tools = x, where x is tools held – 1(spoon carving set) ?

  149. Steve Tomashek February 13, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    If I win I’ll be able to make a spoon to give to my elderly grandmother. She could really use one since she keeps burning her hands whilst eating soup with her hands. Nice work you do.

  150. Robert Newmyer February 13, 2015 at 7:09 pm #

    Great carving set! Pick me!

  151. Martin February 13, 2015 at 7:10 pm #

  154. Gareth Tunstall February 13, 2015 at 7:10 pm #

    I got Robin’s left and right combi-hook and straight knives at Christmas, all excellent bits of kit.

  155. Tristan Hobbs February 13, 2015 at 7:10 pm #

    Wow, incredible giveaway. I have actually been stashing away pennies for this set as I want to get into green woodworking and felt like spoons would be a great place to start. Thanks for the information and advice you provide on here.

  156. Chris February 13, 2015 at 7:11 pm #

    All I can say is “WOW”! Thanks for the opportunity….

  157. Brian Keogh February 13, 2015 at 7:11 pm #

  160. Theodore Sloat February 13, 2015 at 7:13 pm #

    Thanks for the chance to win, I never carved a spoon but if I won I would learn.

  161. Ellen Gagnon February 13, 2015 at 7:13 pm #

    As a newbie to carving I enjoy scratching the itch; doing a little bit each day. I also really look forward to this blog.

  162. Eric T February 13, 2015 at 7:13 pm #

    Lots of people making contact and no wonder for the chance of such a great set,
    If you need to know, I am over 18 and of a sane mind
    Many thanks

  163. Alex Ellis February 13, 2015 at 7:14 pm #

    Great give away Robin, love to have the complete set!

  164. Marie February 13, 2015 at 7:14 pm #

    Hi Robin,

    I am quite a carving neophyte, but I enjoyed making some spoons and a kuksa for our forest trips (http://www.xn--hinterwldler-mcb.info/?s=schnitzen&submit=Search). That kit would be perfect to continue practicing with πŸ™‚

    Greetings from Norway
    Marie

  165. Ute February 13, 2015 at 7:14 pm #

    Very generous of you! Thanks also for the video comparison of the axes.

  166. Kat February 13, 2015 at 7:15 pm #

    Wow! This would really be a Valentine’s Day treat! Don’t get me wrong, I like roses and chocolates, but tools are a much better choice…

    Oh, and my birthday is in just a couple weeks… πŸ˜€

  167. Richard Eadon February 13, 2015 at 7:15 pm #

    Winning these will be a bonus as I’m going to end up buying them anyway.

  168. Nathan Beal February 13, 2015 at 7:15 pm #

    What a marvelous offer Robin, i would be proud to own such an set.

  169. Jan Hoogervorst February 13, 2015 at 7:16 pm #

    Great stuff fingers crossed!

  173. Spencer D. February 13, 2015 at 7:18 pm #

    I don’t have a small axe like that. Would be a great addition to my kit!

  174. Pete Hill February 13, 2015 at 7:18 pm #

    I would love to be the lucky winner and try a set. The lighter axe and longer handle on the spoon knife would be great fun.

    Cheers,

    Pete

  175. teri johanesen February 13, 2015 at 7:18 pm #

    The set is beautiful, would love to have my own rather than having to share all the time. Thanks for this opportunity.

  176. Andrew Price February 13, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

    I’ve been hankering after one of your fine silver rimmed Quaichs for ages, blatant hints have failed to inspire any of my nearest and dearest to buy me one for my birthday (On Sunday). So I’ll probably end up purchasing one for myself. Winning a nice looking set of new carving tools would definitely make a splendid birthday present should fortune smile upon me.

  177. Martin Burkinshaw February 13, 2015 at 7:19 pm #

    A well made tool is a thing beauty, form and function.

  178. John Voloudakis February 13, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

    Great looking tools. Would look forward to the chance to put them to work.

  179. Marc February 13, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

    Great vids, I just came across them a little while ago.

  180. Keith February 13, 2015 at 7:20 pm #

    very nice looking kit, it would be a thrill to use and own.

  181. Jon Salter February 13, 2015 at 7:21 pm #

    awesome set. Let’s see if thirteen is lucky for me

  182. Martin Murd February 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    Not so certain that i would find a constant use for it, but it would make a nice gift for my forestry-inclined brother.

  183. roger Stafford February 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    How generous of you. If I win these will go to my friend, who hasn’t yet got carving tools.

  184. Adam S. February 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    Great promotional idea! You are driving a lot of traffic to your blog. I like your blog. Great work and thanks.

  185. Kim February 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    A very generous offer Robin

  186. Rodger February 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    I admire your work and the approach you take to it. Thank you for doing this…I hope to one day join you at a Spoonfest or another venue.

  187. Mike Hamilton February 13, 2015 at 7:22 pm #

    Count me in. I planned on buying the axe anyway.

    Thanks

  188. Nancy Conquest February 13, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

    I would be honored to win a set of these tools! They look amazing! They look like something my brother would of loved to use! I know my cousin would love them just as much! And they would be something that I would love to give him! He has a passion for wood working and loves your show!

  189. Nicola P February 13, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

    I’ve just made my first spoon but with this set the next one would be much better!!

  190. Angela Wheeler February 13, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

    Oooh, just what our little homestead needs!

  191. Balder Andreas Egholm February 13, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

    it would be great to get the set

  192. P. Crandall Polk February 13, 2015 at 7:23 pm #

    Just the axe alone would be wonderful. I love working with hand tools and have actually carved a couple of bowls. The bent knife would be most helpful with that.
    What a great collection of working tools.

  193. J Huggett February 13, 2015 at 7:24 pm #

    Great blog and lovely bowls

  194. Marcin February 13, 2015 at 7:24 pm #

    Cheers

  197. Max Milligan February 13, 2015 at 7:24 pm #

    I already proudly use your hooks, I’d love more tools to share and teach with though! Great giveaway

  198. Christian Arel February 13, 2015 at 7:24 pm #

    Even if I don’t win I’ll probably end up ordering a set. Are the curved knives ambidextrous or do we need to specify left handedness?

  199. John Dilsaver February 13, 2015 at 7:25 pm #

    Using a well designed and well made tool is a joy!

  200. Bo Nielsen (SnikkarBo) February 13, 2015 at 7:26 pm #

    This would definately be the best gift for anybody who is in to green woodcarving. I hope I am the lucky winner of this great set.

  204. Joe February 13, 2015 at 7:26 pm #

    I rarely enter competitions, but this one looks worth a try. Axe me up, dude! No, carve me up. No, that’s wrong too. Please just me into the draw.

  205. Martin Holme February 13, 2015 at 7:26 pm #

    a terrific offer Robin. Thanks again.

  206. Oliver M February 13, 2015 at 7:26 pm #

    Great news that you will have your superb axes back in stock soon! Hope to be able to get hold of one after missing out last time..

    So thank you for passing on your knowledge and passion.

    And of course this prize draw! Very generous.
    Cheers.

    A beautiful spoon carving tool set. Thanks Robin.

  246. Richard King February 13, 2015 at 7:38 pm #

    I only discovered your blog about a year ago, and have been very impressed with what I’ve found there, especially the wide range of projects you undertake and your infectious enthusiasm.

    I’ve been lusting after your tools for some time too, but haven’t quite felt justified in forking out for them because I already have too many fingers in far too many pies (traditional Scottish farmhouse to maintain). But if a set fell in my lap, as it were, I think I’d find a way to make the time – especially as our 2 acres of trees furnish a good supply a various timbers.

    So thanks for the splendid opportunity.

  247. Ben February 13, 2015 at 7:38 pm #

    Amazing

  248. Jamin Schumacher February 13, 2015 at 7:39 pm #

    These look amazing I’d love to win this set.

    Think of all the spoons!

  250. curt February 13, 2015 at 7:41 pm #

    Count me in as well. I recently had a look at a few of your older spoon carving videos, which are almost magically more educational now that I’ve got some experience. Thanks for your generosity then as well as now.

  251. Jane Brash February 13, 2015 at 7:41 pm #

    what a lovely set, I only have 1 straight carving knife. I hope to be able to have a set. xx

  252. Jeff February 13, 2015 at 7:42 pm #

    I’m not going to pass up an opportunity to own some tools like these.

    I have been umming and ahhing about a right handed open curve spoon knife for a while. I didn’t realise that such good quality axes were available as well and at a reasonable price.

    I will be back for a knife following the giveaway I’m sure.

  270. Brad February 13, 2015 at 7:50 pm #

  282. Tom Goodman February 13, 2015 at 7:59 pm #

  296. Bernard Nulty February 13, 2015 at 8:06 pm #

  301. Paul Kohn February 13, 2015 at 8:07 pm #

    I’ve been following the Facebook spoon carving group with interest for a couple of months now, and I’m tempted to get started on this kind of work. The right tools can make a great difference.

  302. Daniel A Johansson February 13, 2015 at 8:07 pm #

    I would love to get real tools to use for my carving and not only the cheap ones I have now.

  303. Mark Kittle February 13, 2015 at 8:07 pm #

    This would be a great for when friends want to have a go without having to let them use my set.

  304. Jay February 13, 2015 at 8:08 pm #

    I’d love a set.

  305. Sam S February 13, 2015 at 8:08 pm #

    Axes! Want!

  306. Tim Koenig February 13, 2015 at 8:08 pm #

    Nothing makes new, lifelong, devoted, friends like giving away Robin Woods tools. I bought one of your spoon knives about a year ago, in a group buy on the west side of the pond. It disappeared in the mail from the group buyer, and you ended up sending me a replacement. Unexpected and welcome.

    That knife redefined sharp and well made before I even got it handled. Can’t even imagine what a whole set would do for me.

    If I don;’t win the drawing, I just don’t know what I’ll do. Guess I’ll just have to order a set!!

  307. Michael Hansen February 13, 2015 at 8:08 pm #

    I would be glad πŸ™‚

  308. Morgan February 13, 2015 at 8:09 pm #

    I sure admire these tools, it would be awesome to win them

  309. Matt Selfe February 13, 2015 at 8:09 pm #

    A superb set of tools, I find my GB carving axe a little heavy so would love to give your axe a workout, and your hook knife looks amazing.

  310. Shirley Meier February 13, 2015 at 8:09 pm #

    These look amazing and I would love to win a set of these. I should make a spoon-carving jig that goes into our shaving-horse!

  311. Adam Moss February 13, 2015 at 8:09 pm #

    I’m just starting out, these tools look like everything you’d need.

    I’m new to carving, having just finished my first project (ball in a box) as a Christmas present for my son. I am hooked. I can’t wait to learn more and would love to win the tools.

  314. Vicky Smith February 13, 2015 at 8:10 pm #

    Whittle, whittle, chop, chop!

  316. Phil February 13, 2015 at 8:14 pm #

    My brother is really interested in carving but can’t swing the tools at this point. I would love to give these to him.

  317. Wayne Batchelor February 13, 2015 at 8:14 pm #

    I would love a set of these to see if I could whittle myself a decent haircut with some sharp tools!

  318. Dan Cantrell February 13, 2015 at 8:14 pm #

  319. Nic Bitting February 13, 2015 at 8:14 pm #

    This is just what I need to get going on spoon carving. If I win I will use them at the open air museum I volunteer at called the Maine Forestry and Logging Museum in Maine. It would be a perfect fit.

  353. Matthew Service February 13, 2015 at 8:34 pm #

    Thank you for sharing your talents with us via the internet. I have been somewhat “under the weather” for over 2 years now and inspired by your videos and blog started building a bowl lathe to give myself a chance to look forward and not dwell on negative things that I can’t control. Still have a ways to go until my first blank is turning, but just finished my first hook tool and it motivates me even more to get on with the rest of the lathe. I have also started to use the spoon I carved years ago and found I might have to try a few different forms/styles so a chance at winning your fine Spoon carvers set would be really nice.

  354. Kenneth February 13, 2015 at 8:36 pm #

    Wonderful give away!

  355. Henry lines February 13, 2015 at 8:36 pm #

  356. Jerry Palmer February 13, 2015 at 8:38 pm #

    Quite a generous thing to do! Indeed if I win I will find some way of “paying it forward” in some way with my woodworking!

  357. Martin Leonard February 13, 2015 at 8:38 pm #

    Beautiful tools, I reckon I could make some equally beautiful spoons with these!

    new to the newsletter – great information on your blog

  374. Paula Mura February 13, 2015 at 8:49 pm #

    I am just two weeks into my learning of spoon carving and pages deep into the archive of your blog. I have no tools to keep myself busy yet, but I’ve gathered wood from the forest and tried to see spoons hidden in the shape of branches. Your tools seem familiar to me, I remember them all neatly placed on my grandfather’s porch back home in Romania. Of course they’re not the same ones but they could as well be. I am not a skilled carver and a perhaps I’ll never be. But I’d most certainly love to try.

  375. Barton Chesworth February 13, 2015 at 8:49 pm #

  380. Lucille Brain February 13, 2015 at 8:52 pm #

    mmm, these tools look so handy that even as a novice wood hacker I think i could get busy, maybe even make a spoon. I have a few rather lovely ones to use to inspire me,,, πŸ™‚

  381. Tanglewood February 13, 2015 at 8:53 pm #

  417. Rob Schweitzer February 13, 2015 at 9:17 pm #

    Your work is impressive and your advice is useful.
    I would love to have a set of your knives, and I may have to place an order even if I do win the lottery.

  418. Mark sneyd February 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

    Don’t really know why I’m entering….. I do like carving with my scouts and don’t own my own tools. But fear the chances of winning are very slim after all the scrolling I had to do. To leave this comment . But God loves a tryer and if your not in you can’t win. So stuck my name in the old hat too p.s shared on fb

  419. Paul Adamson February 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

    What a great opportunity for an excellent set of wood carving tools. They do look rather nice too.

  420. RobM February 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

    Hope to win

  421. Mike Cumming February 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

    The set would make for a nice way to pass a cold snowy winters day in front of the wood stove, though the lady of the house may not appreciate the wood chips, she’d love some hand carved wooden spoons.

  422. Simon Turner February 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

    Great idea Robin. Can’t resist.

  423. Dane Licina February 13, 2015 at 9:18 pm #

    Friday 13th is not unlucky for me as I maried my gorgeous wife on Friday 13th of December. Let’s hope my luck holds and it would be nice to have something to compare to my Ben Orford spoon knives and GB Axe.

  460. Tom February 13, 2015 at 9:57 pm #

    A green wood worker named Robin

  465. Bill R February 13, 2015 at 10:04 pm #

    Robin, what a nice gesture and what a great site. Started to gather the sandpaper and kit to sharpen axes, just got the 800 and started to work on an axe, it got sharp very quickly, so much so, I barely touched my finger and a nice fine bloody knick! Can’t wait to finish when I get the rest of the sandpaper!

  466. Addison de Lisle February 13, 2015 at 10:06 pm #

    Beautiful work and a generous contest! I like the detailing on the handles!

  467. John Tandberg February 13, 2015 at 10:07 pm #

  521. Simon L February 13, 2015 at 11:04 pm #

    A fantastic starter kit that I have been waiting to come back in to stock got too long.

Can’t wait to experiencd the joy of carving with the benefit of a set of find tools. Thanks.

  522. inzemix February 13, 2015 at 11:05 pm #

    I would love to win this set for my husband…he is learning by using an exacto knife and a small hand saw. He loves it but as I am disabled I can’t get him real tools so this is a wonderful blessing of hope to be able to enter a contest. Thanks for giving somebody a chance to win. I know they are hard work to make and have seen on a site I am in a group on how wonderous these are. Good luck to everybody,

  524. Dirk Hudson February 13, 2015 at 11:07 pm #

    i was devastated I didn’t win the last Axe giveaway.. So here’s hoping.

    A fantastic starter kit that I have been waiting to come back in to stock for too long. Your tools have an excellent reputation. Despite being stuck in hospital on bed rest I have managed to carve my first few spoons and contribute to ISSS 3 using a home made knife and blunt gouge. Can’t wait to experience the joy of carving with the benefit of a set of fine tools. Thanks.

    Excellent way of giving back.. I have been looking at your sets.. I am going to be offering them as an option for my class I will be giving this year.. Would be the easiest way a one stop shop for quality tools.. If I were to win this set there is a young gentleman in my Boy Scout troop whom is very disadvantaged.. And really likes spoon carving. It would be great to win this so I could gift it to him.. Thanks for this opportunity Robin. Truly a great thing you are doing….

  546. William February 13, 2015 at 11:45 pm #

    I am surrounded by trees that simply do not realize they were meant to be spoons.
    Please send tools quickly so I can help these sad trees realize their full potential.

  550. Johan J February 13, 2015 at 11:49 pm #

    This is incredibly generous, and a very nice way of spreading the (already very good) name. I’d be very surprised, but even more delighted if i’d win.. Cause my current kit is quite crappy πŸ˜‰

  551. Greg Haugen February 13, 2015 at 11:55 pm #

  563. Jane Morrow February 14, 2015 at 12:11 am #

    These tools are so beautiful. The photograph makes me want to pick them up and handle them. Yes, the handles are inviting. I can already imagine the spoon I would make. I think I have to get a set even if I don’t win the competition.

  596. Terry Widner February 14, 2015 at 1:17 am #

    No wonder I didn’t win the axe…. I posted my comment on Facebook instead. Now….. I am wondering if I know of any ‘hackers’ (pun intended) that can delete all of these other comments. hmmmm?

  597. Donal Jamieson February 14, 2015 at 1:18 am #

I have Hack at it for some time, What i need is a proper set of tools and a class or too. but I’m a rebel ( I live below the Mason-Dixon line, Some here think we are mad about losing the great war) here in the states. I don’t think you will pay post. But i will. Again thank you for what you do for the craft.

    im a newbie to carving, I bought a Swedish carving knife and I’m using an old hatchet I found, handled and sharpened.
    I’m making spoons and trying to make carved bowls.
    I’d love to have the correct tools for the job!
    Bravo to you sir no matter who you choose! It’s people like you who will make a difference in this world.

  625. Schaeffer Rees February 14, 2015 at 3:09 am #

    I just started spooncarving with a friend around maybe a month ago, so far it has been a ton of fun. Though it would be alot better with better tools, instead of the ones that I forged. I’ve gone onto youtube and watched tons of your videos on everything to do with woodcarving, they’re a super inspiration, and tons of help. I would love to win this set of tools. Thanks for everything you do for the woodcarving community.

    -Schaeffer

    I started carving spoons in 1984, but it was off and on until I found your wonderful blog. I have been active , but I am in need of good tools. Here in Colorado I carve oak, aspen, chokecherry with some pine thrown in. Thanks for all your knowledge over the past years. Hartley

  647. Stew Kepler February 14, 2015 at 4:49 am #

    A quality set of beginners tools for a novice spoon carver would be great. I hope Friday the 13th is lucky.

  652. Jeremy Wright February 14, 2015 at 6:55 am #

    Love your work and appreciate your willing attitude toward sharing your knowledge, it’d be foolish to not put in for some proper green wood tools (despite the number of entries)

    Being able to touch and use and learn through using a set of tools hand crafted and loved into existence based on an age old tradition by a true magician, inspirer of beauty as well as a legend in our time would ensure each spoon hidden in the wood could be freed like the gift it is.

  686. TrevorML February 14, 2015 at 9:39 am #

    it would be so good to see this set appear in the land Down Under so that I could show my woody friends that a damn great set of green woodworking tools does not have to be expensive… and especially this one as quality is not skimped on at all… brilliant designed tools Robin… just need to add a Twca Cam to the inventory πŸ™‚

    cheers and all the best in this new year

  706. Pia Andersen February 14, 2015 at 10:52 am #

    I have just started a project in 5th grade public school where I am a teacher in woodcraft. The 11 years old children are cutting their own plates or bowls in birch, they have cut down in te wood themselves. We are using tools simular to yours and gouges as well. It would be fantastic to add some more tools to our collection of only 2 axes, 4 round knives, 14 ordinary knives and 6 gouges for 14 children-many regards from Copenhagen DK

  707. Chris Murnin February 14, 2015 at 10:53 am #

  735. Milo February 14, 2015 at 1:44 pm #

    I’d love to get my woodcrafting skills up to scratch with this set!

  736. marcus February 14, 2015 at 1:44 pm #

    This would be a lovely end ro my birthday weekend, I should have sobered up by Tuesday. Look forward to making spoons with this kit.

  737. Jamie February 14, 2015 at 1:46 pm #

    I have just started green woodworking/spoon carving and where I live in the US when I tell people about it they look at me like I am from another planet. It is hard for me to describe the closeness to the wood while o am carving and shaping it. I find it very satisfying. These tools would would be such a great improvement over the junk shop versions I have currently.

  738. Christopher Williams February 14, 2015 at 1:56 pm #

    I must admit I am really tempted to buy one of these kits. It would make like simpler at Scouts

  739. Messimerwoodworking February 14, 2015 at 2:00 pm #

  746. Kat February 14, 2015 at 2:23 pm #

  774. David Turner February 14, 2015 at 4:18 pm #

    I love wood, always have – there is just something special you feel when working with it. I have been following several spoon sites for quite a while and although I am not currently a spoon carver, I have wanted to be since seeing some awesome spoons at a local antique mall a few years ago. Unfortunately, because I am now retired and on a fixed income I have not been able to afford the tools that I have seen online and have been unable to find any in my local area of the Mid-South US available. I would love to be considered for your starter kit….I even have various woods I have been collecting stacked and waiting when I have the opportunity to start!

  775. Earl Miner February 14, 2015 at 4:31 pm #

    Would love a set of carving tools. Have been hinting at Christmas time but no luck yet. Thanks for your blog and posts.

    Long been an appreciator of Robin’s blog and efforts to raise the profile of craftwork. I’ve recently started running spoon carving courses & am trying to accumulate some tools for students to use. Had old car-boot restoration projects in mind, but this would be a perfect start!
