Using traditional Japanese tools, this wooden spoon carving kit will teach you how to design, carve, and hollow out the bowl of the spoon. It's a fun afternoon project and easy for anyone to learn. The best part is that you get to finish and keep your very own custom creation. All supplies, a spoon gouge and Mikikichan carving knife, and instructions are included. This kit is ideal for adults and children under direct supervision. These tools are great if you would like to continue carving more projects other than spoons after.
