me on the TV tomorrow

Postby robin wood » Sun Oct 07, 2012 3:20 pm

A few weeks ago BBC filmed for a day in my workshop for a new series "Paul Martin's Handmade Revolution" it goes out tomorrow 3.45 BBC2. Not sure what the target audience is at that time of day.

Paul made a wooden bowl on the lathe, they filmed a bit of me forging tools and carving a spoon but that may not make the edit.

For those that don't know my work this is a nice film made recently by Artisan Mediahttp://youtu.be/GLpNNf4V5lU

Very cool! Nice to see wood turning on national TV.

Great video. I never really understood the attraction of wood-turning before, or self-powered turning vs. machine turning for that matter, but I think I'm beginning get it now. Interesting thoughts on the toll it might (or might not) take on the body. You look v. fit though Robin - bodes well. I really like your bowls & their texture - do you leave them unoiled for eating? I agree they are quite different to the machine turned bowls I have seen. I also liked the look of your muesli container & scoop - but it was just a glimpse, I don't suppose you have images of it do you? Is it birch bark?

I like the way you incorporate handcrafted things into your life, I think that is something we need to do more. I notice you wore clogs but not like the all wood Dutch clogs I've seen in the past, they look more like cowboy boots. How do you like them?

Birch bark was from Jarrod who posts here http://greenwood-carving.blogspot.co.uk ... nship.html
Clogs from Jerry Atkinson, they are British clogs which always had leather uppers and they are very comfy, cheap for handmade footwear and last a good 10 years hard use and abuse. http://greenwood-carving.blogspot.co.uk ... g-way.html

Jarrod's Birch-bark container is stunning. The decoration shown in the images on your blog were not apparent in the video - so thanks for the link. I can see why you waited some time before cutting the lid for the spoon. I too would have been reluctant to change it but I think what you did really works well. That Peter Kohidi spoon is rather special too and it looks like the two were made to be together like that. Makes me want to eat muesli for breakfast.:)

And to think, the Queen makes do with Tupperware for her breakfast cereals. :D

I see you have an excellent article on oiling wood too: http://greenwood-carving.blogspot.co.uk ... -wood.html
