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
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.
