Heirloom Wood: A Modern Guide to Carving Spoons, Bowls, Boards, and other Homewares

From the moment we picked up this book, we were impressed by the photography, the philosophy and the thoughtfulness the author put into sharing his craft. This is a great book for anyone curious about getting into woodwork and what that might entail and how to get started on one and then a series of projects. 

Publisher Description

Heirloom Wood is a love letter to wood’s form and function through simple woodworking projects. Combining traditional techniques with contemporary design, Max Bainbridge teaches you how to identify wood types, source timber, and set up a basic toolbox, then offers step-by-step carving and cutting techniques for making your own pieces. With little experience and very few tools, you’ll learn to create hand-carved bowls, cutting boards, spoons, knives, and spatulas, perfect for adding a touch of the handmade to your home. With further advice on finishing your projects—how to sand, ebonize, scorch, and texture the surfaces, as well as wax and oil your new, beloved kitchen creations—each of your handcrafted projects will be imbued with a tangible history visible through the maker’s mark. With beautiful photography and clear how-to instruction, Heirloom Wood gives you everything you need to create timeless kitchen keepsakes to be passed down from generation to generation.
