I like this one better than the tatton park one, I don't quite know why, but its the piece i've enjoyed carving most from the whole year. I would have liked the wood to be larger diameter, I could have got a better join in the middle then, but I like it anyway.
btw I'll be running more courses next year, I'll do some specific ones like faces etc too. I know harry was interested in the face one, and mick was asking about the advanced. have a good christmas mate and love to all

OK Simon, will be very busy juggling the carving and felling work I have from now till April but let me know when Harry can do it and I will try and make it.

All the best for 2010
