the week that was – two 3-day classes of spoons & hewn bowls at Roy Underhill’s Woodwright’s School. No daytime temps under 90 degrees F., mostly higher. The students hewed like demons, but were glad to stop at the end of the day… thanks to all the students & friends who came out & did such great work. Pictures with captions now:

It was a wonderful time, Peter. Thank you! My mind is on fire with thoughts of spoons, bowls, hatchets, and knives.
If I recall correctly, someone’s “Fitbit” logged 6,000 calories in a day. Who needs a gym?
It was an extraordinary several days – learned so much and had such a great time. Peter, the knowledge you shared was just terrific. Everyone was incredibly generous with their time and patience as well – you, Roy and the fellow students. What a great bunch!
Yes, it was hot, but not too bad – would do it again without hesitation.
The twca cam was pretty interesting – I failed to take note of which one of Nic’s you were using – it’s not the compound curve one, is it? Just the regular one, right?
I have noticed the trees slightly quaking as I pass by now, thinking “there’s a spoon – there’s a bowl” … Or is that just the wind??
Thanks again for a totally wonderful experience!
Re: boot rack, I know yo use guys supose’d ts be tough, but l won’t be in the market for any spoons for quite a while!
Just thinking of baskets that could be made from that tulip bark.
Wow! Look at that radio in the last picture! I’d love to see more of that.
