I live in suburban Virginia, south of the City of Richmond. The housing development is called Woodlake. The name, the Spoonman isn't what I want to be. I want to be a woodworker with a big focus on spoon carving. I have hardly any tools, I am just getting my feet wet so to speak. I am getting there, slowly, but surely.
My drawknife should be here sometime early next week. I am going this weekend to buy some odds and ends to make a shaving horse. I am trying to find a half decent axe. I think with those basic tools I can really start to move forward. I need to learn about sharpening and how to REALLY hone my knives. I need to make a space for working, the garage will be my workshop for now..I need to start treating it like one. The list goes on and on and on. But a tree does not grow in a day, but when it has grown it is a thing of beauty and majesty. Maybe if I take my time and do things the right way, I can make something that is worthy of the tree it came from.
