Sorry for the long absence.

Hello all,

Sorry for my long silence, it’s been over a year since I last posted! With the New Year it’s time to get this blog going again with a post I’ve been working on for a while on understanding wood and making spoons and spatulas. I will try and ┬ápost at least once a month on various aspects of working wood by hand.

Hope you enjoy it,

    Hi Phil! I think it would be great to read more of what you have to say on your blog. By the way, thanks so much for an unforgettable time learning at the Castle in November, for your help and care I am very grateful!

      Hi Carlos. Thank you for the encouragement. It was a great class and I hope it helped you move forward with all your woodworking plans.

  2. Hi Phil, Look forward to reading your blogs going forward. Loved the photo that Paul posted of you sitting in your finished rocking chair. Would be great to hear your thoughts about making it. Hope to get the chance to build one myself some day. All the best!
