Wonderful Weekend Weather

Remember when I said I was going to work on carving up a koi? well scratch that! I ran into a little problem when I was unable to work on it because of it's shape. Now I know I could have done a couple of things to aid me in this task, but in the end, I decided to scrap it and start over. I just wasn't "feeling the koi in the wood. So instead, I worked on repairing an axe that I had broken some time ago. After seeing a video of a guy making a handle with a knife, I thought i could do that at least. I think it turned out pretty good. and I can always repair the handle again if it happens to break again. Then I set upon my next project. I cut a slightly larger piece of Cherry from the fallen tree and got all the bark off it before the daylight faded on me. It's been so nice outside I have moved my work station outside on the back porch. Hopefully, i will keep the blog updated a little more regularly in the future. Hope everyone has a great week!

I'm glad you were able to enjoy the beautiful weather. Do you have a plan in mind for the Cherry?

You may have to use a very soft wood to do a koi as it is such a fluid shape. Yes, sometimes the blogging just can't get done.
