    Default Just for the fun of it

    I've been whittling/carving away a bit, just for the fun of doing it. There's no need to tell you folks how much fun it is as you're the reason I've had a go at it. Whether it's good therapy or just the enjoyment one gets from having a tool in their hand and creating something, whatever, I am enjoying it.

    Here's a few, all birch:
    A wine glass? With a nickel for scale










    Some assorted spoons and a ladle



    I'm afraid bankruptcy is imminent as crooked knives and bowl adzes are also interesting me.

    Nice job BB07 the satisfaction of achieving the art of carving and admiring the colour and grain of the nature of the wood. Well done
