Look to your firewood pile for plenty of project inspiration.
I’ve been cutting up my leftover bits of green wood for firewood to use in my new workshop. It’s not going well. I have a feeling that we green woodworkers freeze to death in the end. It’s because when we’re splitting firewood, we keep finding interesting pieces that will make good bench legs, shrink pots or what-have-you. And of course, spoons – everything is a spoon. Many of the smaller items that I keep seeing emerge in the firewood are things I learned while studying spoon carving with my Swedish friends.
I use low benches around the yard for woodworking, seating and other tasks. There might be six or seven of them right now, I really can’t have too many.
