The Urban Woodsman

The Urban Woodsman


A Modern Guide to Carving Spoons, Bowls and Boards

For the past year we have been working on producing and writing The Urban Woodsman. We set out to create a book that would teach you the art of carving simple and functional objects from locally sourced wood. 

"Hand carving is easy, satisfying and therapeutic when guided by Max Bainbridge. Create your own unique pieces and carve with confidence thanks to detailed information on tools, cutting techniques and clear step-by-step photography accompanying each project. Start with basic spoons, cooking spoons and spatulas, before moving on to butter knives, chopping boards and small bowls, with only a few simple tools required. Max also advises on the perfect finish for your projects - how to sand, ebonise, scorch and texture surfaces as well as waxing and oiling your new creations. Whether you are a novice or experienced carver, this book will inspire you to make something that you will be proud of."
