Jake came on Saturday and really enjoyed his Introduction to Green Woodwork day.
He turned a rounders bat from Chestnut…
…and carved a Willow spoon.
He showed a strong aptitude for this type of thing and has been encouraged by his dad, Mark, who came with him and took these photos on a lovely sunny day.
He would like to become a musical instrument maker and I wish him well – we need to encourage our future craftsmen (and women) at an early age.
