Here it is gang, hope you may have enjoyed tonights blog. Some fresh cut cherry, a real gift to have if carving spoons is your gig. I hope you might enjoy this one. There is so much more to this craft that lends to all aspects of the handtools game. A fantastic exercise to venture into learning about new timbers and how they work.

Thanks for all of your comments and inspirations with all of your fine works!

Have fun and keep making shavings!

I have some cherry logs from limbs sitting in the garage… in the burn pile.. maybe I should have a go at carving into a utensil?

And I watched the really old video (pre 1930’s) showing how to make a pair of wooden shoes from a log… I need to find that link again… it was before sound… so subtitles in Swedish…
