    Thanks Paul:
    But I am afraid I would cut some fingers off… I don’t own a hatchet, only
    have a jointer to get a flat edge..
    I guess you don’t use power tools.
    I love making spoons though..

    I just spent 40 minutes watching a video on how to make wooden spoons. I
    dont even have an interest in wood working, but man was this video
    interesting to watch.

    Very good, could it use any type of wood “healthy” speaking?

    I have a question Paul, what kinds of woods are safe to use as utensils and
    cutting boards?

    This is really really nice video. Before starting to watch it, I thought,
    that I won’t be able to watch such long video about spoon making, but I was
    wrong – That was one of the most enjoyable videos I’ve seen in a while.
    Organic, simple, without script, just a man and his work. I would probably
    cut off all finger that I have, so I’d rather use disk sander to do the
    final shaping. Nevertheless, you are my hero and I am not a woodworker at
    any level at all.

    Really enjoyed that, and nice comparison to bushcraft. Very well done!

    I just started working with wood and this has given me all kinds of ideas
    (since I am actually a cook by trade). Great video!

    I appreciate the mindfulness of the spoon making process. Thank you for
    giving me ideas and a view of the skills that I can develop making spoons.

    That huge gouge slicing effortlessly through ash is a treat to watch.

    I like the way you show people and your use of tools. As stonemason who was
    put out to grass because an illness, I have watch a lot of programes and
    videos on how to. I found yours very good.

    this is very good info, but I don’t have a vise. Can you suggest how to
    make a spoon if you don’t have a vise?

    Неплохо, НО, у вашей ложки осевая линия абсолютно ровная, что не верно,
    потому что есть такой ложкой не очень удобно, должен быть не большой угол,
    в месте соединения ручки, посмотрите на русские деревянные ложки, как они
    сделаны и вы поймете…у русских ложек богатая история)

    My first endeavor, from lignum vitae, is almost done. Thanks for not only
    the expert instructions, but the motivation as well! And I really need a
    decent spoon (or two).

    That bow saw is magnificent. Watch how effortlessly he starts it on a 45
    degree angle, listen to the sound of it as it cuts. Perfect
