This  ultimate set will let you finish your spoon faster and safer with the  bench hook, Welly First Aid Kit,  and be able to cut even more blanks with the mini panel z-saw. A signed copy of one of Melanie's book, Carve a Simple Guide to Whittling. It has 12 different projects and all the instructions on how to keep your tools in the best shape. The kit also comes with  a place to keep all your tools with our nifty canvas roll and one of each spoon blank: bass, cherry, and walnut.

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 15 mm spoon gouge and  Japanese 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 afterward.
