I’m relatively new to LJ’s, and am constantly surprised by the quality of the work the members here
apply to their projects. Inspiring to say the least.

Hornbeam sounds like a very interesting wood. Imagine that it would be great to use in making
hand planes and tool handles as well.

Personally, I like the way he’s used a unicorn horn in the midst of his angled thimajib to contrast the hornbeam – am I the only one who can fully appreciate this? Hummmmmm :-)
