Imagine you're lucky enough to get a chance to take a class with a master woodworker who specializes in gorgeous spoons and bowls. That's what this dvd is like, except better, because you can stop, rewind and watch a section a few more times if you need to. Jögge Sundqvist is that master.

This is a re-release of an older video. The older video is good quality and it is on par with my favorite craft shows and dvds that are currently being produced.

Mr. Sundqvist is an enthused teacher, who starts from green (fresh cut) wood and using hand tools creates bowls that can be used as dough bowls or as a gorgeous fruit bowl centerpiece and spoons from the wood. The tools used are easy to find, an ax an adze, a knife and gouges primarily with spoke shaves for finishing parts of the bowls.

He takes you step by step from splitting the wood to make a bowl and picking the best pieces and designing the bowl to fit the wood to what branch shapes make the best spoons. He shows each step of the process clearly, demonstrating how he holds the knives for safety and how he positions himself to chop the wood.

I love the bowls, and they are a great project, but I have a weakness for handcarved usable wooden spoons in my kitchen. The spoons demonstrated are gorgeously shaped, elegant and frequently decorated with pretty carving.

He talks about the history of wood carving in his family, and one of the things I loved was the obvious deep pride he takes in his work and in his home.

Recommended absolutely for people who are considering hand carving, for people who want to learn more about making wooden spoons and bowls and just because it's a very enjoyable DVD.

I bought this for my boyfriend and it is a good DVD because the author actually demonstrates the art of carving a bowl and a spoon, while talking about what he is doing every step of the way. He shows the tools (all hand tools) that he uses for specific aspects of the carving, how to hold each tool and how to make cuts for the best result, how to stand to protect oneself from injury, how to treat the finished product, and more. I would recommend this DVD because it is a visual as well as an auditory comprehensive lesson in carving with hand tools.

One of the best things about this video is the opportunity to actually see the carving process happening, and when the demonstrator is a master of his craft, as Mr. Sundqvist is, it is a delight to watch, in addition to being educational!

This DVD is extremely helpful in developing wooden bowl hand hewing techniques. The DVD takes you from the green log to the finished product. I have used the Rip and Terri Mann's bools on hand hewing wooden bowls and I find this DVD goes extremely well with the Mann's books. Again I am using tools like this DVD and Mann's books to develop my hand hewing techniques. Both are very helpful to those of us that are beginning to develop our own technique for hewing and shaping wooden bowls. These tools are a must for serious wood hewers and bowl makers.

A good video for watching the process of making woodenware. Does not go into any detail on tools used. This is a companion video to the book by his Dad. The book gives written details of wood, tools... Still a worthwhile video to observe the making of the items.

A very good learning tool of wood carving techniques. Good photography and clear simple instruction. Pay attention to the safety tips as the tools used are very sharp!

I bought this to learn more about carving and to get ready for a camp. I like the safety tips, the start to finish method and the explanation of tools needed.
