It had been a busy few months with other projects developing at a pace. Meanwhile, whilst still needing to eat, commissions for woodturning / carving have provided time in the workshop away from research on the PC.
A 'Large Salad Bowl' Commission is nothing new, but to take the order via contact through this website from Brussels just goes to prove that on-line business for bespoke handcrafted products does work. The finished Hardwood Salad Bowl hand turned in my workshop measures some 14" x 6 " - and yes it is sat on a large jam jar in the phot - it was what cam eto hand :-)
The next project, from my local area of Chapel en le Frith, Capital Of the High Peak none the less, was an education in carving English Oak - I have confirmed that as it ages it gets a lot harder and carving by hand is very hard on the hands ..... or my hands have gone a bit soft over the last few months. I look forward to seeing this Roof Finial in place some 50 ft up above Bank Hall Lodge.
Thank you for looking through our news section.
