    Vaping

    There seems to be a lot of us smokers who are using the ecigs to get off the stinkies pretty succesfully :) Especially the die-hard (no pun intended) 20yr + folk who have found it the only way. I'm trying to get myself sorted for 5 day + durations in the woods/ at festies using a combination of...

    Possibility of a draft folder for messages?

    I often find I rush a message because I can't save it as a draft... do these boards support a draft function which could be enabled? It shouldn't take up too much bandwidth... or would it ;)

    NE Derbyshire Meet (Pic heavy)

    I can't resist a work party so when I saw there was one up in NE Derbyshire, I decided the time had come for a neighbourly visit from England (Mids) :) The forecast was decidedly balmy so I combined work with pleasure and packed up the latest stock for a longer than usual test drive. They don't...

    I fancied getting back to my Turbogirl roots in combination with the woodland fun I've found here so thought I'd suss out the local off road club for a combination bimble today :) I even saved a flock of sheep wandering in the road on the way, SuperTurbo to the rescue, don't hold back on the...

    Goodbye Tipi, Hello Laavu?

    Just waved a sad farewell to my old recycled tipi and decided I need to bring its spirit forward into a laavu :) I learned a LOT from making the tipi, much of which seems pretty symbiotic with the laavu design although I think the designs can amalgramate to be a 'best of both worlds' hybrid to...

    Northwood October 2012- Picture heavy :)

    It was a quiet meet in many ways, with many absent freinds this time and dotted through the beautiful autumnal woodland :) Saturday morning dawned clear and crisp, with the SSSI rhymed with a frost... gorgeous :) There was lots of lovely leatherwork to drool over- here's Lee's ipad case/...

    Etching (large area/ axe head)

    Well, Sasquatch has me all fired up with his wonderful blade (seen on his thread 'Finally One For Me' but even more gorgeus in real ife!). I've been doing a thread takeover so thought I'd be better starting one myself :) The basic requirement is for a fairly deep etch on a trail hawk hatchet...

    Noob foray onto stock removal knifemaking

    I've made an auspicious start and thought I'd post my results so I can look back eventually- hopefully- and learn a bit :) I've got a fabulous knifemaking guru who encourages me and no doubt will kick my butt, Canadian stylee, when I mess up through stupidity- which WILL happen eventually, I...

Drop on by...

    DIY mocotaugan/ crooked knife :)

    I'd say it was my first ever knifey project but as I was mostly looking on and learning, it's more my respected Elders :rolleyes: We're from a genetic line of knife makers (J Nowill & Sons) but we're the impoverished end of the line and never played knifeys ourselves although he's definately...
