Chopping Boards

These hand made chopping boards featured in a recent photo shoot for Oriel Myrddin Gallery in Carmarthen.  Lovely to see them alongside work from fantastic potters, Silvia K Ceramics, James Burnett-Stuart and Peter Bodenham!

Long and curlies.

Using a drawknife askew on this elm creates long springy thick shavings.  I’m making the legs for a carved oak bench, similar to a previous version I made earlier in the year.

Shown with Ashley Iles London pattern gouge and a finer (and smaller) drawknife than above, forged by James Howarth.  Two lovely tools, very old and very new.carved oak bench elm legs.JPG
