I turned up on the wednesday and pitched my tent and spent first couple hours sharpening my axe since I had a couple hours to kill. We started by selecting and splitting some willow into sizeable pieces for the bowl mate and removing the bark so we could draw the design.
After the the adze came the the gouges and hook tools to smooth off all the cuts and make it nice.
Then came the axe to remove the waste wood to give shape to the ends.
and finally finishing of the outside with a push knife and a spokeshave to give its final shape. The push knife was a fun tool, like a drawknife but the opposite. The finished bowl is at the bottom.
hoping to make a few more some time soon :-)
