Slab on the slab

A break from bowls today. Carved and painted sign on oak slab. Part of one of the boards from the Huxham's cross tree, destined for somewhere along the Dartmouth road.

On the slab

So, we have an open workshop this two weeks, just outside Totnes, everyday 10-5 until the 25th. There's a display area and woodworking demonstrations almost constantly. Come and have a chat about what's going on. On the slab today.

South Brent Woodfair

A great day at South Brent Woodfair yesterday. Despite the weather, lots of interested friendly folk. A tiny outdoor space, but packed with talent. I was so busy demonstrating and talking to people, I didn't get the chance to look inside.


Hewing, adzing and see-saw sawing demonstrations. Lots of axes etc.

Trimmed the drawer front to size.

Might finish this chest one day soon.

Open Studios for the next two weeks. Come on down to the Cowshed Gallery.

Stock Gaylard Oak Fair

Last weekend was Stock Gaylard Oak Fair in Dorset. We bought a new gazebo in case it rained, but we were glad of the shade, because it was hot! Sorry for not keeping up the usual constant woodworking demonstrations everybody. I am sure there was enjoyment to be had in the sitting down (and breaking) camping chairs demos instead.

Helen from the Grain Gallery liked the oak bowls. They will be exhibited at the Grain Gallery for 3 months, starting straight after Devon Open Studios 9-25th September. Off to Dorset once more oak bowls! From Huxhams Cross to Sherborne and who knows where else.
