Sorry More Spoons

Sycamore spoons made while glue was drying on the elm and ash table ...;b

Well I did go to see the furniture at the Botanic Gardens.. But I had to take a look around the parkland at all the beautiful tree's!! ;b

I've not visited the botanics for over 20 years.. I won't stay away for as long next time... ;b


Today I headed into the city to the Botanic Gardens in Edinburgh..
To take a look at the Makers By commission, exhibition. Showcasing the Scottish Furniture Makers Association .. All these pieces are made out of Elm which was cut down in the city, in another park called the meadows..
So I had a little meander round and met one of the makers, who lives not far from me it turns out..
Some really special work here very inspiring... Have a look for yourself...;b

Into The Swing...

I got the legs fitted into the table today...
Maybe I'll add some bracing, not sure as yet though..
 The light ash legs work well with the darker elm top... It's far from finished but you'll get the idea... Kind of been side tracked lately, but  now I'm getting back into the swing...
And yes a trip to the workshop isn't complete without carving a quick spoon...;b

In The Way

I headed out today intending to do something on the table.
That I started the other week, but a piece of cherry that needed to be a spoon got in the way..
And here it is...;b
