Alex Keilty said he'd help me get started, not with a root, but with a nice piece of green wood. He made the first rough cuts with his axe.
Look at the beautiful silver inlay on this knife made for Alex by a talented friend.
After my first carving session, I kept my spoon in water so it would stay soft and easy to work.
Charlie was intrigued.
I really didn't get very far with my carving. Too many other things I wanted to do more than I wanted to carve.
I've removed the spoon from the water and I've allowed it to dry. Maybe I'll work on it with my Dremel someday.
It has a long way to go before it becomes a real spoon!
The big glass container is back to being a candle holder.
Now it's Puddle's turn to be intrigued.
