More To Come

I had a bit of a sanding session yesterday sanding the top and legs of the table for my sister , the timber is looking nice with some olive veins in the light coloured timber . Hopefully this coming week , I can put it all together.
 I also cut and cleaned out some nice tight joints where the legs fix to the top and I have an idea for a little quirky brace , more to come on this :)

When The Sun Came Out

Well when the sun came out for while on boxing day , I headed out to feel the sun on my face as its been a while ! a twisted beech caught my eye along with an old dead elm with lots of burrs-burls covering it . And on my way back the sun shining through the spruce it was good to get out for a while ;)

As Promised

Christmas is just two sleeps away now, I got all that shopping caper, done and dusted yesterday !! So I was free to head out to the shed for a while today, I promised my sister that I would make her a waney edged table so I got stuck in to this cleaning up the timber, and making a big pile of shavings in the process. I'm using field maple for this table , a pleasant way to spend an afternoon on a wild wet day, piling up curly shavings ;)

Side Tracked Spoon

I looked out a few boards to get started on a little table, for my sister . But somewhere along the way I got side tracked with a little apple spoon . I'm hooked on these spoons I love to sit and dream, listen to some music and whittle away ;)

Spalted Spoons

I had an afternoon making some spoons , out of a bit of spalted beech . I must be getting better! no blood spilled while carving out these spoons with super sharp tools. The spoons will have to dry out before use, but they look neat with the spalting in the timber ;)
