Louie's Shop

I brought up my wood carving tools (shown here laid out on Louie's workbench) and we spent some time carving out a spoon from some (halfway seasoned) plum wood. Here are a few photos: Louie's strap for carrying cases of wine, made out of upholstery strap and drilled-out branch handle; his band saw (a powerful tool); Louie using a "slick," a large chisel used by ship builders -- the blade is slightly curved, it's a pleasure to use it.

Will try to put up more photos from trip if I get the time.
