    East meets West - slingshot sootoff! with pics and a dog! :)

    well, I still haven't seen any of this nice weather we have been promised in the UK yet, but not being deterred by the lack of sunshine, I still elected to head out into a local bit of woodland with the dog for the afternoon. I'd very luckily won myself a DanKung Cougar from Joerg Sprave...

    some small 'gift knives'

    I was a bit bored this afternoon, and decided to make some small little 'gift' knives for a few mates.... they are way too small to be of any practical use other than letter openers, but I was bored and I have a few deserving friends of the 'bushy' persuasion that these might bring a smile and...
