Video: Wille Sundqvist carves a spoon—1982

Talk about a blast from the past. This video of green woodworking legend Wille Sundqvist carving a spoon is as close to woodworking nirvana as many of us will experience. The video was recorded by then Fine Woodworking Associate Editor Rick Mastelli (likely while shooting the article Knife Work for FW#38) and posted to Drew and Louise Langner’s  Country Workshops YouTube channel.

*It just came to my attention that I posted this video when Willie passed away in 2018. I don’t care. Made ya look! This video should be resurfaced as much as possible! -Ben
