Japanese Spoon Carving Kit
Oakland-based designer Melanie Abrantes has quite literally carved herself a reputation as one of the hot new names in creative woodwork. The author of "Carve: A Simple Guide to Whittling" has collaborated with a traditional wood-tooling workshop in Japan to create this wood carving kit aimed at beginners. The kit contains two spoon blanks made from Japanese Cypress wood, a spoon gouge, straight chisel and angled chisel, handwritten instructions, wood butter, sandpaper and a plaster (ya know, just in case). All packaged in a cypress wood carry case.
The tools are made in Japan. This kit is ideal for beginner level students. All children should be under direct supervision.
