This past weekend saw the older two (Willow and Gabriel) and I head off to learn how to make chopping boards using traditional hand tools and recycled wood. The whole experience was totally exhilarating, and I am looking forward to trying out another class later in the year.
Willow's blue gum Chopping board.
Gabriel's jarrah chopping board.
Feature nail holes (Gabriel's piece of jarrah was once a beam in a house).
My she Oak chopping board, with uneven back.
Everyone is also onto some new work- Gabriel is doing some botany- we went for a sketching walk yesterday, and Willow is onto physics- starting with a week of sound experiments. As usual there are lots of interesting things happening around here.
