Thanks for that Robin, really looking forward to Spoonfest- hopefully the weather will be kind.

Made 4 spoons so far in 2 weeks (more than in the last 4 years).
Having difficulty getting fine finish with knife so succumbed to sanding but hopefully will gradually improve the knife finish.
I've been orientating the spoons with bowl facing the radial cleft surface.
Age is catching up so will need reading glasses or loops to do the decorative stuff.

Thanks

Shankar, it comes to us all :). The slim ones, that you can look over the top of are handy for woodworking ;).

I see that Nic, Jarrod & Sean are going to be there - should be good :)

Due to unforeseen circumstances I cant make Spoonfest this year so have a ticket for sale. If interested just look at the Traders corner section. :(

How did Spoonfest go? I was hoping that we might be able to drop by but some illness in the family put paid to that. We did however make it to the Peak District a few days later, on the way up to the Lake District & stayed one night at Hathersage, not far away I believe. I wanted to show my son some of the famous climbing spots which abound round there. Also spotted a craft centre/store near Froggat (Baslow?) but unfortunately didn't have time to stop in there.
