Okay, maybe not. But here’s someone who did, and it’s fun to see how he did it. Since there’s a scene in IMMORTAL WARRIOR in which the the serfs at Alnwick spend a rainy day in the hall making spoons, I was interested to see this authentic recreation of the process, and I hope you are, too.
When I was a kid, I was so jealous of my older male cousins and their pocket knives that I nagged my Grammie into giving me one. I immediately started “whittling” — not well, but enthusiastically, and there’s still a part of me that wants to carve something wonderful from wood. (Note to self: Add to Life List)
How about you? Did you ever carve/whittle? What did you want to do as a kid that you haven’t done yet? Have you put it on your Life List?
PS: Okay, I’m going to come clean. I originally went to Boing-Boing’s post because the title that came up on my RSS feed was “howto-make-a-viking.” Now there’s a worthwhile project…
