Alright guys... I'm a building surveyor when I'm not playing with my Magnum MS880, and today I came across a nice big straight Oak that the customer wants rid of from his garden. It's in Godalming in Surrey, GU7, with good access to the adjacent field and an amenable farmer by all accounts. It's over 3' diameter and about 40' tall, having originally been much bigger, but lost a bough or two in the '87 storm. If I lived locally I'd have it myself but I'm 600 miles from home. Any use to anyone? Seems a shame to burn it! Photos available by email. Ivan. 07790007979.
Walking in my local nature reserve I noticed a silver birch being taken down so I had a chat with the warden and he kindly allowed me to take a branch away. A week or so later I gathered some tools, froe, axe, large knife and a spoon knife and started work on two bowls. The first step is to split the log into two halves and then start carving with the axe, the axe is used to quickly remove wood and rough out the intended shape. The shape is then refined with the large knife and the spoon knife is used to hollow the bowl. Although the wood was split into two very similar halves the carving produced two very different bowls, the shape, thickness and curvature comes from working with the wood and not against it. Mark
