Hand-carved housewares not only add function and beauty to a home; they also represent the time, skill, and dedication of the people who crafted them. If you have ever wanted to try making your own, Heirloom Wood is a terrific place to start. This beautiful guide is filled with step-by-step instructions for making simple projects like spoons, spatulas, bowls, and cutting boards from sustainable and reclaimed wood. The contemporary designs in this book don’t even require many tools, but the gorgeous wares can be used and passed down for generations to come.

Description


Heirloom Wood is a love letter to wood’s form and function through simple woodworking projects. Combining traditional techniques with contemporary design, Max Bainbridge teaches you how to identify wood types, source timber, and set up a basic toolbox, then offers step-by-step carving and cutting techniques for making your own pieces. With little experience and very few tools, you’ll learn to create hand-carved bowls, cutting boards, spoons, knives, and spatulas, perfect for adding a touch of the handmade to your home. With further advice on finishing your projects—how to sand, ebonize, scorch, and texture the surfaces, as well as wax and oil your new, beloved kitchen creations—each of your handcrafted projects will be imbued with a tangible history visible through the maker’s mark. With beautiful photography and clear how-to instruction, Heirloom Wood gives you everything you need to create timeless kitchen keepsakes to be passed down from generation to generation.
