i love wood

2017 is a year of page turning, saying hello new and saying good bye and well done to things previously started that are now finished.

One of my hello new, is embracing my love for wood.  In 2016 I’ve been learning to master the scrollsaw and making jewellery and Christmas decorations.  In 2017 it’s leaning to turn wood.  Yep, I’ll be taking a rough log and making it into delightful, smooth, shiny timber products such as pens, bowls, beads, candleholders and jewellery.

So excited to have had two official lessons at my local woodworking society and racked up 2 hours practise on hubbys (and my) lathe.  My brain is expanding with all the new neuronal pathways and I’m loving it, sawdust and all.  What amazing therapy. What an beautiful way to create.

Above is some of my Hubby’s creative timber work, he now works full time at our woodworking business called Lathe & Chisel, turning pens and jewellery.

Yay to new adventures, blank canvases and freshly cut logs of wood.  Follow our creative adventures on Facebook and Instagram.
