This particular one got passed around and every new owner wanted a new knot fitting, it’s had black badger, two band badger and a synthetic knot or two fitted over the years.
Is there a commercial market for badger hair? We occasionally have badger problems and some guys from the local hunting club always come and sort it out for us free of charge. They have even turned up unsolicited to check if more badgers have found a des res under our outbuildings. As they dispose of the corpses I assume they are making money out of it on the back end. (I have no problem with that.)

I've been having great fun making bowls/pots lately, I posted one of them a few weeks ago, since then I've made a small cup sized one from oak which seemed to take great delight in reminding me why it's called iron wood sometimes, I'm currently working on a piece of cherry wood, it's a very frustrating piece of wood to work, ive got it to a shape and wall thickness I'm happy with, now to start sanding, not sure what finish to use on it, I currently have teak oil, bees wax and varnish, or would you fine gents suggest something else? I will be transferring my logo onto the bottom.

Made some furniture for a "zoom room" for my current employer. Table, TV table and display unit all part of it. Made my life difficult by going with a endgrain detail down the middle of table which is part of the leg assembly but it worked out quite nice. Bit of touching up on the wall needed from when I put the logo up. My little send off project for them as I relocate to Canada in 2 weeks time. Finally!

Canada?!! Envious, the land of nice wood, plentiful & not extorsionately priced!

Good luck with the move Dan
Hope you will post your new shop build on here

Nice furniture btw 😀
Thanks Ian. Definitely will share the new shop, I'm going to be in a couple or temporary ones for a while so proper shop build may only be next year.

Thanks again.

Got asked by a friend to make a bird house using slate from his late father’s property in Anglesey, the design was taken from a photo

The house is made from off cuts of Sweet Chestnut the base recycled decking.
The lead is held in place by two tabs burned into the top piece.

It’s a replacement for a previous bird house so I popped over & installed it this morning.
