March, the month I dislike the most. Cold and miserable; winter dragging its heels on the way to the exit.
The upside is that I have time to look back, reflect and plan.
The last year has been low on the craft side, very few projects that I had planned have come to fruition. I intend to rectify that this year.
Quite apart from learning more about web design, I want to get back to my hand crafts.
I had intended to make a draw horse last year and start more green woodworking, that is ongoing; well I have the base cut and drilled at least. Next step is to source some seasoned ash branches for the legs; the dreaded onset of Ash die back may see me have more than I can handle. Once I have this I will invest in a drawknife and start ‘bodging’.
Still with woodworking, I have a supply of fresh Eucalyptus, just begging to be used and also chopped into firewood, thanks Bob!
Finally, I have always wanted to carve a spiral twist, now that my stock of Hawthorn is finally dry enough I can give it a go. No particular reason for this, just a case of a new challenge.
(This is in bone, but you get the idea)
