Hello Lloyd;
I came across your blog via the surfmatters blog. I read some of your posts about surfing and it sounds like you should give surfmatting a try if you havn't already. We could meet sometime and I could let you borrow a mat. I even have some extra swim fins if our foot size is similar.
I surfed the Bo' channel last Saturday on my mat and had some fun, though it was nothing to brag about. So, if you're interested in meeting to surf, please let me know.

Quiver, I have a surfmat and some DaKine fins, just haven't tried them out yet. Mainly due to recovering from shoulder injury. I know as I keep getting older, the mat will make sense.

Hi Lloyd, I love this old footage - classic traditional Swedish carving. I've seen it many times now and never tire of seeing the skill and craftsmanship. The carving horse and wedge method of holding work is very effective and still common amongst bowl carvers. Have a look at thi site for this and other work holding methods : http://greenwood-carving.blogspot.co.uk/2010/05/how-to-carve-wooden-bowls.html

Also, you might like this film of Romanian spoon caver Ion Constantin - another classic :
