I’m slowly starting to get a decent bit of kit together and with many thanks to Jack I now have these little beauties to add to it ?
They’ve given me the motivation to try out some relief carving that I will blog about separately.
I also found this little carving tool underneath the stairs today
It may have been forgotten and seen better days but I will have a go at cleaning it up and restoring it to it’s former glory.
As you may be able to tell by now I’m not fussy about the condition of the tools I come across as they teach me a great deal and have a certain kind of quirkiness that you just wouldn’t find in a shop. Perhaps also it’s because I can’t afford to be fussy and my whole mend and make do attitude reflects that. Either way my toolkit may have some interesting stories to tell!
