Be patient, carving doesn’t happen overnight and carving spoons definitely takes a lot of practice...trial and error, and patience. Then, I would say always keep your knives sharp, wear safety goggles, and have a first aid kit close by-just in case, then, find people in your area who also likes carving and learn from them (if they are willing to teach). Watch...learn...listen...and most of all have fun. This would be my best advice.
