* * *

We've just about sold out of all culinary treen lately so today with a few swift whacks on the froe and some quick strokes of the axe I reduced a small sycamore log from

this . . .

to this . . .

in a couple of hours.

Now I have to refine them with the drawknife, spokeshave and various other knives . . .

which is quite good fun but takes longer (more fun to do than to write about).

Also made us some new name badges from thin pieces of rippled Sycamore . . .

for our rustic corporate image !

Going to be going down to Leonardslee in Sussex for the weekend. Hopefully they'll want kitchenware down there.
