    Making a special spoon bowl carving tool from an old car spring using blacksmithing and tool making techniques.

    In this film I show you how to make a very useful and effective spoon bowl hollowing knife, that can also be used for rounding off the bottom of pole lathed wooden bowls and plates. I have used an old car spring as the source of good tool steel for this project, and in the film I take you through the blacksmithing techniques, and the tool hardening and tempering using a gas torch.

    Finally I give a short demonstration of the tool in use, so that you can see how effective it is.
    I hope you enjoy this film that was shot on location in a woodland, and back at my workshop. Show less
