  1. Green Birch wanted - Essex

    I should have said that I can collect in an estate care, Suburu Legacy.
  2. What wood do you want?

    Hiya Us axe and knife carvers love fresh felled birch and fruit woods, as do pole lathe turners. The problem is getting a steady supply as once the wood is a few months old it is to dry to carve. For us carvers some crooks are very welcome....
  3. Green Birch wanted - Essex

    Hi all I have run out of carving wood but I am hoping that yesterdays wind means that there is some very green birch about? Does anyone have any? I am in Bicknacre, near Danbury, near Chelmsford. I carve this sort of thing, with axe and knife.
  4. wooden mushrooms,,,

    As usual very nice
  5. one for the turners

    That is quality work, with beautiful wood.

  13. spoons what wood to use

    Don't mention scorps, I managed to leave it of my "must have" list.... so far But as you have mentioned it, how is it in use?
  14. spoons what wood to use

    Hiya I have a load of Nics blades; A drawknife, 30mm clip point, Twca Cam, a left and right handed spoon knives, and a 70mm carver. They are all a joy to use, hold their edge well and all very, very sharp. On my wants list is Nics axe and adze, a roughing out spoon blade, a 100mm carver and now he is making gouges..... Much of what Nic makes is not on his website yet. When Nics blades arrive they are super sharp and I have started using his sharpening material as it is the best way to sharpen the blades. Although they stay sharp with just stropping for ages. Sharpening - Nic Westermann
