This is a tough category. So much of what we do outdoors somewhat overlaps current and traditional tools and techniques. So, we'll try to make some sense when we categorize articles.

Crafting a Large Wooden Spoon

I had just felled a small Maple tree, maybe six inch diameter, by hand. Looking it over, I was thinking of doing some sort of project with green timber. Upon inspection, there was a slight bend in the trunk that seemed it might make a ladle or large spoon easier to shape. I cut a piece about 18", and took it to our camp location to fool with it. The video shows various stages of shaping, and has bits of yapping about knives.
