Meats #2 The Woodcutter

In this third episode of The Butcher's Apron 'Meats', Emma and Nadine interview wood-dwelling craftsman Barnaby Carder. Better known as Barn the Spoon, he now spends his days sitting in a London shop-front, painstakingly whittling wooden spoons. Having spent three years travelling around forests - sleeping in the woods and carving spoons from the trees, he has finally embraced a "normal" way of life. Here Barn talks to The Butcher's Apron about expertise, experiences and enjoying the simple things.
