Work in progress


Here are two lime wood blanks I have marked up with designs. They await a time when I can start sawing…


…and here they are after a long and exhausting process of sawing/drilling/chiselling etc. The one on the left was very challenging because of its shape – some areas were¬†hard to get to with hand tools, so I had to resort to drilling. The one on the right was difficult because it is thick wood (10cm+) so hard work to saw, and slightly too big for my vice to hold, so it was tricky to secure for sawing. Now all I have to do is carve them, sand and polish!
