Stool

This is where we don't want anything but evidence of your finest wood butchering in all its glorious, and photograph laden glory. Bring your finished products or WIP's, we love them all, so long as there's pictures, and plenty of 'em!

Thanks Malc, but you wouldn't Adam n'Eve how tough that ash is to carve. Brilliant for all sorts of stuff but carving and sculpting ain't one (or two) of them - Rob

...even using razor sharp 'Rider' gouges from the old firm. The plan is to purchase a few coarse or extra coarse Saburr Tooth rotary burrs from CHT at the International Woodworking Festival this coming weekend where I hope there will be the usual show discount.

I've also fitted, but not epoxied...

I'd swap that tube light for a couple of LED panels. Give you more headroom. :D
