    Saturday Spoonage

    Hi Kepis, these look really nice. I think that the blue on the lime one is a good idea as the natural wood doesn't have a lot of detail, so it gives it a bit of 'wow'

    Elvaston Castle Woodland Festival - Derbyshire

    Hi Addo, Not sure which day I'll get there, but will definitely be there on one of the days. For anyone who has not been to this event before, it's a fantastic day out. It's not 'commercial' like some other events - it's just a great opportunity to meet and mix with fellow enthusiasts, and...

    Coleman lantern - deluxe model 201! Need help and advice..

    Hi Samon, These are fantastic little lamps - particularly when you get one for just £4! There are loads of people who who pay ten times that to get their hands on one in good condition, so it's worth you persevering with getting used to it.

    New sewing machine

    Wow Re8eldog, that looks posh! I got an old Janome, think it was about £25. I'm not capable of making clothes or anything fancy, so started by making peg bags (for tents) out of scrap materials. My scout group scrapped a couple of old tents, so I grabbed the old canvas and made bags for Vango...

    Todays spoon carving course.

    SOAR, thanks for the course yesterday and for posting the pictures of our work. I really enjoyed working with you - you were certainly patient, and I never felt rushed.

    Why did I buy a 246 Tilley?

    Hey - as someone born before 1960, I don't class 1974 as a 'bit old'! :-). And you do realise that this lamp will soon need another one to keep it company? You'll buy it for spares of course, but then think that 'it's too good not to save' ........... :). If you need any guidance / advice...
