Check out this video if you want a tour of Ben's workshop (beware of workshop envy chaps!)
Here I am with my haul of new tools on the bench, after a blister half way across my hand and a lot of hammering of hot metal. I'm so glad we got to work indoors as my friend Simon and I were camping in November!
|Me holding the products of my labour, |
with Ben Orford at his workshop in Herefordshire.
|My good friend Simon who joined |
me for the 2 days.
|2 spindle gouges - one roughing out gouge |
and a flat chisel. The tangs were very tricky!
