I have always enjoyed whittling. Many years ago on vacation in Bonaire I spent many hours whittling pieces of driftwood.
And recently I have become more and more intrigued by wood carving. Every year for Christmas I get some “mad money” to buy something for myself that I wouldn’t normally buy, so this year I used my mad money to buy a quality set of carving tools.
A close friend of mine is a woodworker and she had given me some scrap wood. Armed with my new tools I started an adventure to see what I could create. I was intrigued to find out what great things might be hiding inside these square blocks of wood.
And here is what came of my adventure.
Finding a way to combine these carvings with vintage bits was my next adventure. This new line of work feels like a natural evolution of the work I had been doing.
