    Super, thanks. I'll PM you now. On offer now is a small Staniforths Severquick axe. I replaced the wedge in the top if the handle but it might need redoing. Other than that it's in good, sharp condition. I'll put some pics up tomorrow, I'm working nights now.

    Made a chopping block

    Thanks for your ki d comments. The height was quite by accident but I have recently watched one of Ben Orfords videos where he talks a little about chopping blocks. He says a good height is so that your knuckles sort of drag on the top of the block. Which it does. So I'm happy. Wooden...

    Made a chopping block

    Evening all, further to my adventures in spoon carving, I happened to come across an old log seat. You know the type, a hefty log cut by a chainsaw to make a little seat with backrest? Anyway, I repurposed it. In the field opposite my house there is a load of hawtorn growing, so I cut a few...

    Waterproof Smartphone 2019 ???

    I've got a Samsung S8+ that's built waterproof. I've taken it swimming in the river and recorded video with it underwater. I've even had video calls in the the shower with it. :joyful: Its rated for 30 minutes at 1.5m. I've got a good case for it, more because I'm paranoid about breaking it but...

    Spoon carving frustrations

    I've only been at it a couple of weeks. So far I've learnt that I need to use the axe more but I'm still struggling on carving the bowl and the intersection between spoon and handle.

    My first spoon type thing

    Addictive you say? I got up at 9:30 and carried on after starting it yesterday, I'm still sat in my pyjamas fettling it!! I think I might have already caught the bug! LOL Thanks. The more I look at it, the more I can see wrong. LOL

    My first spoon type thing

    Well, here it is, my first spoon type ladle sort of thing. I started off with a bit of Birch and no real plan, just sort of hacked at it. All good though, I've learnt some lessons about the use of the tools and to use the axe more in the initial roughing out stage. Oh, and I need a lighter axe...
