Catching up

In the words of the late great George Harrison: 'It's been a long, long, long time'. I'm not going to apologise for not keeping up with the blog, because I've done that at least once before and I don't want to come across as insincere. I do feel guilty though. I try to post quite regularly on Instagram and I'll often share those posts on Facebook, but I've neglected the Holt & Heath Facebook page and especially this blog. I will try to do better.

It's been about 8 months since the last post, so I'm sure you can imagine that a lot has happened. I'm still carving spoons and turning bowls, but have also finally managed to finish my Welsh stick chair as well as a few other items of furniture. I've been on a few courses including a fantastic day with the ultra talented Nic Westermann forging an axe.

I've also read a lot of books. Some about woodworking, some that are about how to live a better life and some that are about both. I'll try to share my thoughts on those too. So, I've got a lot of catching up to do. I'm not going to write an epic post now, but watch this space and hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things.
