The Sunday Stills Challenge this week was Hand Tools.
These are some of my hand tools.
These are some of my favorite wood carving knives. My old standby a Palmer, a Mike Shipley, and the other two were made by my husband. I help him form the walnut handles so they feel real nice in your hand. Making knife handles is an art..as is making knives. I make birch bark sheathes for all my knives. ( That is my favorite knife under that sheath..it has a busted tip and needs to be reshaped and sharpened.)
I like to carve little houses/churches/buildings out of Cottonwood bark..the thicker the better. Underneath the knives is my carving glove, I wear it on my left hand, and I wear vet wrap on my right thumb..just in case. I belong to a wood carving group, we meet once a week and carve. Have a good week everyone! I put up the last two challenges Easter and Trains..I wanted to catch up! :)
