Hi everyone,
New member from Wiltshire.
I’ve been woodworking properly for about five years. Usual bit of casework and joinery, but recently became a bit addicted to trad chair making. Also peeking down the carving rabbit hole now, of which I’m a total beginner.
Only have a converted single car garage workshop, but I love it!

Hi and welcome from Northumberland.
I do a bit of carving from time to time, in the round rather than flat and it certainly can be a deep rabbit hole.

A bit north of you, just outside Bradford on Avon. I used to work down your way at the college a few years back.

I’ll have to dig around for some pics! I’ve got a low back Windsor that a WIP at the moment, but not at a pretty stage though, or some other furniture I’ve made for my son.
Tbh all I have done today is rebuild the headstock for a friend’s lathe, I don’t think anyone will want pics of that!!!

Although the Sapele that I chose for the seat, because of the interesting and wriggly grain really made me question my life choices when scorping that out today.
