Make your own Viking spoon

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.

Viking style spoon

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…
