    latest carving

    Absolute cracker that one mate!! What do you use to get the eye features when it`s set so deep? I bought a Flexcut 11-piece palm which has some pretty small tools but I still struggle to get the eye details right when set back in the sockets (usually end up burning the eyes in with a pyro pen!)

The longer stick is from the top of a Holly tree which snapped during last years heavy snows, the bark was stripped straight away to let it crack and look aged, it`s stained with Antique Pine wood stain.

    Midge repellents - a comparative review

    I too spent many years as a woodcutter on the West Coast, the only one I found to be remotely effective was Autan, it`s still the first thing into the rucksac when I`m heading out fishing, walking, camping ( well...first thing after a fine Malt!!) :o

    Ha! Ha! My mate had one in his shed! (A 60w works just as well but add a couple of hours onto the drying time)

    Jerky...biltong type stuff!

    I used the 1kg packs of lean steak from LIDL!! Trim any fatty looking bits, Marinated in salt, pepper, vinegar, brown sugar and some dried chilli overnight in the fridge then into the box. 2kg at a time took 24hrs.....larger box or more meat would take a bit longer but results were spot on...
