The Spoon, the Bowl and the Knife

This documentary looked interesting, so I Kickstartered it.

This is about Wille Sundqvist, a Swedish craftsman who works on wood with axes and knives. He’s done a few books about cutting with Swedish techniques, and this covers examples of him creating a ladle and a bowl, as well as talking a bit about his knife. While ostensibly not a woodworking film, it does go through and show various grips as it if was a demonstration film. And I am surprised just how well he can craft the items (especially with that shaking hand he has going on).

It’s a nice documentary, although it could be longer. It came in a nice looking packaging as well. Not sure if it is possible to get this documentary anywhere.
