Covid Carving Suggestions

Now that Boris has dropped his Rule of Six bombshell, it is obvious that we will not be able to meet to carve for some time, so I thought that I would share with you some of my “On Holiday” carvings.    We go on walking holidays and often are carrying all our belongings in a rucksack from one night stop to the next.    This restricts  the weight of our stuff, so wear one and carry one of all items of clothing is a general rule, a half used tube of toothpaste, and no room for any carving tools except my trusted Opinel pocket knife.      I pick up small interesting bits of wood as I walk along.   They have to be pocket size, and suggest what might be carved.    I am not expecting you to go on a walking holiday during the Covid experience, but you might find interesting bits of wood when pruning trees or bushes.   You don’t need any special space for doing this, although a very accommodating partner is required if carving on a carpeted surface.   I have confused chamber maids in Abu Dhabi by carving in my hotel bed!!
