Hi, Andy

I was there as well, bought a nice plank of brown oak and a small axe.
I had a good chat with Rich Arnold had a go on a pole lathe, picked up some cheese, bread and beer.

Didn't spot you, it was quite busy.

I was there on Sunday as well, I too bought a bit of Brown oak and a nice plank of beech. Enjoyed bodgers corner the most, though the chainsaw carving was good as well.

Got there well early but found nowt (tools :roll: ) cheap enough that I wanted :wink:
Was a really nice folding knife/secateurs @ £200.
Tony Murland seemed the cheapest......
Might have crossed paths Pete as I spent ages with Richard myself :wink:
Was well impressed with Phill Gregson the Young wheelwright, great lad to talk to and watch in action =D>

Hi, Andy

I just missed the tyre fitting, I would like to have seen that.

I allways seem to come home with some wood, but takes me a while to use it! I am making a box from some brown oak that I bought 3 years ago.
