After family and writing, my greatest passion is working in wood. Please don't view what I post here as instruction - there are plenty of folks out there posting how-to videos, some good and some not so much. If you pick up an idea, great but mostly I just intend this page to be about sharing my love for a craft that has brought me joy for so many years.

Note to self: Never go out to the shop for 'just a minute' while boiling down a chicken for soup.

Found these two old spokeshaves at a yard sale. Can't wait to return them to usefulness.
