I Made This

This weeks 'The Gallery' theme is: I made this.
 

This is the third item I carved since starting my newest hobby which is woodcraft. The first was a walking stick for fathers day, followed by a nice little spoon (that the dog has now eaten).

I acquired a nice branch of Hazel which had a nice kink in it where I imagined the scoop to be. 
Here's how it looked.


The process is very enjoyable and can take you however long you want it to as long as you don't rush (and damn near slice off a digit), however, it took me around three hours to amble along and get it perfected :).
    
I am really looking forward to see what other people have made and read what they blog about on the 'I made this' theme..

Ok now, bye bye then..

    1. It can actually be very therapeutic indeed. Give it a try, there are many links to videos on youtube for instance showing different techniques. Thanks for the comment :)

  4. That's excellent. I've not done woodwork since school and I wasn't particularly good. Shame the dog ate the spoon!

  5. Very nice woodwork, I used to love crafting things from wood when I was at school but ask me to do it now and what I produce would probably be just right for a dog to chew!
