Packages have been pouring in like it's Christmas in spring. The contents of these packages are always beautifully crafted whether they are brand new or a hundred years old.
These packages I speak of contain hand tools; hand tools that will be used to bring back the old ways of woodcraft.
my husband, Johnny, likes to work with his hands, from pulling shots at Stumptown Coffee to carving spoons; it's no wonder they look aged beyond his years. Covered in numerous cuts and scrapes at any moment, these hands are gaining new skills, and quickly. That's why I wanted to introduce him as an up and coming piece of Forest and Field Creative.
Using tools such as the Gransfors bruks carving axe, carving knives, spoon knives (hand-forged by him), antique planes, and many more that I am unaware of, he will begin building his skills using simply these hand tools. He will create things such as:
Bowls. Spoons. Cutting Boards. and Tables.
While implementing some blacksmithing as well.
This is just an introduction.
Johnny is still obtaining the necessary tools and practicing his skills in the backyard accompanied by the goats. Stay tuned.
