    Friday Ye-Haaa What's up!

    Well if my name were Pacos I would be catching a ride............. but since it's Davey I'll be in the studio all weekend hopefully finishing up the Fox.
    Wife is out for the weekend. I do need to meet customers in the shop tomorrow morning and then back to the studio.
    I dream a lot. I do more painting when I'm not painting. It's in the subconscious.

    More carving on the new overly large and complicated spoon. I'm not very good at carving so the carving is taking me a looong time even though its not very complicated carving.

    Yeah, sharp is not the problem its making sure I do the right cuts in the right place that's the problem Right now I'm working on carving a pair of single pass turks head knots around the top and bottom of a section of twist (or more simply a three strand braid in a circle) and I've already gone over two under one once instead of over one under one I did a test piece that went pretty well, but this is only about 1/4" across so its all attention to detail. The Barley Head handle is a very similar layout for carving differing mostly in the detailing so by the time I get there I should be more practiced.
