When Im out walking or cycling, I always scan all around in the shapes and shadows that we can pass by every day in nature. These shapes are the inspiration for a lot of what I put together :)

Country Roads

The weather this weekend was absolutely gorgeous , frost in the morning then sunny all day . I jumped on my bike and headed off , I cycled the country roads until I found a nice tree lined trail and followed it through the woods.

With all the trees now wearing their autumn cloaks and the bleached bone colour of the standing deadwood it was a great day to be out and about . Hiding among them I found this special tree, I wonder if any of you guy's know what it is ? check the last 3 pictures and  place a comment with your answer :)

I spent some time cleaning and sharpening my hand planes this morning, then I shaped up a few stool tops using them.

With one of the ash tops I turned out a nice little three legged stool with scrub birch legs, there's lots of character in this old olive ash :)

Not So Wild

On friday after work I headed off for a cycle, watching the leaves which are just starting to change into their autumn colours waving around in a strong breeze. I headed out of town and out into the surrounding farmland, there are very few, wild animals to see in our part of the world . But there are some other not so wild creatures, that make us stop and take a look . Ducklings, silkie hen chicks, goats , fat sheep, tamworth pigs, a little pony along with a couple of donkeys, and a puffed up golden pheasant, what colours he has in his bright show off cloak  .Here they all are :)

A Little Carried Away

I got the chair finished off this morning sanded and waxed and ready for a wet day with a good book. I got a little carried away with this particular chair with oak leaves and the mouse resting in a little hole, in the back of this chair  . But I think it all comes together , what do you guy's think :)
