|The finished signs, with the oil finish drying|
This blog is continued with older entries on my website's 'Latest News' page, where you can see projects and images going back to February 2009.
There's loads of images of my carvings and projects on the website, going right back to when I first started out carving. There are also, of course, a few stories. To see them or to return to the website, please click on this link

Today was spent running a woodcarving workshop for the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers (BTCV). The people attending were all young people who are carers, looking after someone (e.g. a family member) who needs help in their day-to-day life.
We carved signs from oak which will be put in the BTCV's Tree life centre in Kingswood, Bristol. The signs identify the different types of tree which are grown in the tree nursery there. The trees are sold to fund the charity's work.
Everyone produced some really good signs and it was a pleasure to work with them all.
