My Carving Kit – the Tools I Use. Whittling a Spoon. Campfire Coffee

In this video, I will be going through my wood carving kit that I use for whittling in camp. I am certainly no wood carver, but there is huge enjoyment to be had in crafting useful objects like spoons, spatulas, cups and the like whilst sitting by the fire – it is one of life’s simple pleasures.

I have built up a small but fairly complete kit over the years that enables me to make a variety of objects and projects. The tools need not be expensive, in fact most of mine are at the lower end of the price scale. This is not a complete list of tools, nor am I saying these are the best and that you should go out and buy them. They are just what I have and I will go through what I like about them.

Thanks for watching and happy whittling!
