It's neighbour looked more promising...
....but when halved...
...was also a bit twisty.
Made a new sash for a georgian house at the bottom of Totnes high street.
Finished the woodshed for customers in Ashburton.
I decided that the oak I had got from Dartington was too twisted, so I have decided to carve bowls with it. With so many 'bowl blanks',I am roughing them out with a chainsaw to get them processed before they split.
And then swapping over to my axes and new Karlsson gouges to take them down further.
I have had this Henry Taylor flat carving adze for about seven years now, but found no use for it. It has come into a lot of use this week, for the long curves of the boat bowl and surprisingly effective at hollowing out (after a few kerfs with the chainsaw).
I need to make a bowl horse, but for now, because I am making several similar bowls at the same time, I can use one to hold another.
