People sometimes ask what tools I use. I've tried a lot over the years, but for grinders, my current favourites are Manpa Tools and @saburrtooth

It's strange to have summer without all the shows and events, so here's a throwback to 2016 the 'event season'. It's one I haven't shared in a while of Sir Lancelot and Guinevere. https://t.co/2l9Zn4oYMA treecarving photo

This legend would be 94 if she was alive today! A portrait done live at the Shropshire County Show in 2016.

Still lots of detail to add in to this yet, back on it next Wednesday!
So far mostly used my @STIHL_GB

Back on to the big stuff! I'm enjoying the weather and enjoying the challenge of fitting a descending mountain lion into a trunk!!!

Carving might be the closest I get to some of these wild animals! Lynx, red deer and wolf from the Fforest Fawr sculpture trail we featured in our 'walk through the woods' in this week's blog
