This book demonstrates how, with three basic tools – an axe and two knives – you can shape a small tree branch into a simple, honest utensil.

As well as information on tree identification, EJ explains the key techniques of chopping, splitting, planing, shaving, and cutting. Once you are confident with the woodworking skills, you can progress to the projects chapter where full instructions are given for making five different utensil types, starting with the simplest spatula, cooking spoon, and hanging jar spoon, before moving on to a coffee scoop and then finally graduating on to the bentbranch spoon.

EJ Osborne studied Product and Furniture Design, before coming to the realization that designer products for mass manufacture would simply add more 'stuff' to an already overburdened family. After a career break to start a family, EJ started to get the 'maker's itch' - and the itch to make something soulful and meaningful that led to spoon carving. Carving spoons felt so good that EJ now does it all the time, and runs workshops, as well as having spoons stocked in Anthropologie in the UK.
