Who knows? You may even discover a new hobby as a wood artist. The simplest of all techniques used to carve spoons out of wood is know as fire carving; you should read about it and practice a little bit, but once you get the idea, making spoons, mugs and almost any kind of vessel will become very easy indeed. To start with you will need to find an adequate prism or chunk of wood; that is, a piece of a certain length, width and depth, because you will have to carve on 3D. The best size for a wooden spoon is around 25 x 4 x 2 cm. The it is only a matter of half and hour and a little work using the fire carving technique, and you will get your spoon.

Finding adequate wood for such a project is easier than you think: Only in dry or arid regions you may face some difficulties finding adequate resources but even under such circumstances you can improvise. For example, if you are travelling around in an all-terrain vehicle that is for real, you will likely find wood planks, boxes and so on somewhere inside the truck. Then, a little cannibalisation will suffice to transform a piece of those planks into your spoon. Ammunition boxes, construction leftovers, etc. tree branches and many other objects may prove useful as well.


Repeat the process a few times and soon enough you will have a spoon!
