Using traditional Japanese tools, this beginner level spoon carving kit will teach you how to carve and hollow out the bowl of a spoon. The best part is that you get to finish and keep your very own custom creation. All supplies, a 15 mm spoon gouge and Mikikicha carving knife, and instructions are included. This kit is ideal for beginner level students. All children should be under direct supervision.
