A heart for Heart

Last week I sent off a batch of boards for Heart Gallery all the way up in Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire. If you're in the area you should pop in!

Wedding present

 I recently completed a commission for a pair of boards for a wedding present. I was given pretty much freehand, the only catch was that the boards had to be personalised with my freehand pyrography!
I chose to make them from a lovely piece of yew I had been dying to use.

 I enrolled on a wooden toy-making course which ended up only being 6 hours long spread over 3 weeks. It has been a refreshing change from serving boards and I'd like to make some more sometime.
Here are my little accomplishments...

The animals are made from mahogany and the Tractor is beech. As you can see, I rinsed their supply of wheels.

Back in production

I've finally managed to get sorted and have been making boards in my new workshop. Here's the first big batch I've done in a while, there are lots of little ones from all the offcuts.
