    Carving Tools Course

    This time it's a week long course to make your own Carving Tool kit! :Wow: This course combines my knife and axe making courses, with a little extra thrown in. As always the course is run in my Woodland Workshop in the heart of Devon, about 10 miles west of Exeter and you are welcome to camp...

    Berberis Spork

    After much nagging, I have finally made my daughter her spork. I recently trimmed a piece of, very windswept, Berberis from my father-in-law's garden and was amazed by the colour. Really pleased with this one, the colour and the grain are really nice.

    Kuksa !

    I started this project in the spring. It has sat in my 'to do' basket for months I have spent the summer learning new skills and traveling around the West Country. Last week I finally sat down with my MiniMac knife and finished him off. I've just taken multiple orders for more. Looks...

    Summer time Kuksa...

    I have been asked to carve a few Beaver tail kuksa. My friend and fellow spoon maker, Alan, arrived with a few lengths of Birch for the job. I use my H.Roselli axe for these Beaver tails. There is a lot of obtuse end grain work to chop. The Roselli does this work very very well. I don't...

    Some recent carvings! Pic heavy.

    Biker's Woodspirit a.k.a. "Beserker"

    Had one of those Sunday's today. Alison my partner's been glued to the TV watching the celebrations of Her Royal Highness and bemoaning the fact that I'm missing out on this historic occasion. Now I'm proud of the Queen and all, but having the gogglebox in the corner tell me how I should spend...

    spoon carving... my way!

    i think that a spoon is more than a spatula with a depression :D... apart from being useful, the spoon should be graceful and pleasant to the eye. the most difficult part to make (for me) is the "neck" (i don't know if there is a specific word for it :o ), which should be elegantly curved...

    My first finished carving

    Hi all, I thought I would share some photos of my first finished carving (as of about 10 mins ago). I say first "finished" carving because I started a spoon before this which still needs a lot of work. All honest opinions and constructive criticism are most welcome. A little while...
