Malago, MEGALITH: Several pieces in a small show of local artists
The days are shorter and darker and I'm back in the studio again and so happy... tho not happy to see the moths have been at my tarten blanket.... Woodworking and sculpting is mainly a winter activity because the basement where I work is dark and cold in the summer and wild horses won't drag me down there when the sun is shining. The rooms are transformed in the winter with central heating and lights.
I'm starting out on some new projects, trying to make some free standing pieces as well as some new types of wall mounted work comprising of small bits and pieces.
I've also ordered some more dowel from Northumberland from the Man up There. I don't know how anyone could have 3,000 bits of dowel, but he does and now I'm waiting for a delivery of another 700. That should keep me going for a few years and also prevent me from being stingy with what I've got.

Using off cuts to make a board of squares. The grain of the wood is extraordinary. The finished product looks like a game of some sort - a cross between dominoes and chess.
I used the horrible noisy and scary table top saw for some of the cutting then went back to my band saw which is quieter and gives a neater cut. Learning all the time about these machines.
The timber comes from a skip and I shan't use anything except discarded bits for my next piece. Waste not want not.
