Working with a spoon carving gouge
Gouges are more natural instruments to some of the carvers simply because they serve all the needs of carvers like knives can but can also be different in terms of detailing. It takes a little time to adjust, but you’ll know how valuable the tool is as soon as you use it more than once. Spoon gouge will let you create a spoon ladle with great ease and pleasure, without struggling on making it round and smooth with a knife.
Spoon carving set materials
Everything that gets created by BeaverCraft here in Ukraine, which is the biggest country in Europe, aims to achieve the famous European quality in everything, including wood carving tools, is made out of only the most optimal materials there are for toolmaking. The handles, or shafts, of these spoon gouge set tools are made of light wood and the most ergonomic shape for carving that won’t exhaust your hands quickly and would allow you to work on your projects longer. They’re finished with natural oil to prevent cracking of the handle and preserve it longer.
The blades, or razors, of the instruments are made with high carbon steel which holds the edge and cuts wood easily, much better than other options like stainless steel, for example. It’s easy to strop or sharpen and the effect will last longer so you won’t have to worry or get bored with the routine anymore. Of course, you still need to strop the tool if you want it to serve you better and longer.
What to expect from a spoon gouge set
A set like this can be useful for spoon carving, first of all, that must be obvious. The knife will help to create the overall shape of the spoon, the hook will make the ladle shape that you want and the long bent gouge will finish the process by thinning out and perfecting the shapes of the ladle and handle. The spoon carving set will be also very useful for experimenting with new tools and patterns with concave shapes. Just try the set out and you’ll see for yourself!
