I saw from Drew Langsner’s newsletter today that Country Workshops has the reprint version of Wille Sunqvist’s book now available for sale. Here’s what Drew wrote about it:

“Carving spoons and bowls continues to be an area where more and more woodworkers find their special niche. The English version of Wille Sundqvist’s book “Swedish Carving Techniques” was published by Fine Woodworking in 1990. Perhaps 10 years later it was discontinued. Used copies became expensive, if you could find one.

We are pleased to announce that this classic book is available once again. Nothing has been changed, except for the inevitable price increase. Now available from the CW Store. You can purchase a copy by phone (828- 656- 2280) or e-mail.”

It’s a great book – I refer to mine continually. Here’s their website, http://www.countryworkshops.org/index.html  you can contact them through there. The book is not yet on their website, but the newsletter says it’s available. I think it said $25 plus shipping…you can buy it elsewhere, but why not get it from the folks who brought Wille’s work to the forefront here in the US?

PS: a quick clarification: Here, I had mentioned there’s a companion video available as well. I should have been more clear – there’s a video Taunton Press shot at Country Workshops in 1988 of Jogge Sundqvist making a spoon and a bowl. It’s a great how-to video, well worth having. The new video about Wille Sundqvist’s carving is not yet available. It will be before too long. I will shout it from the rafters when it’s out. Sorry if I got things mixed up…

Thought you’d like to know.
