Whittlin'

One of the things that i have always enjoyed doing is whittling a stick and have done it for over 50 years as man & boy, but in recent years it became more important as it became part of my living to teach people how to create everyday items such as spoons and bowls to misc things like letter openers, wooden flowers etc etc etc, all with a pocket knife and from sustainable readily available materials that are quite often in your garden, yep, that branch you pruned can be turned into things rather than just thrown away.

Since i've contracted RA its become a way to not only exercise my hands, arms and shoulders, but also a great way to lose yourself in your thoughts on those bad days.

Anybody else have hobbies and pastimes they undertake to help keep their joints moving?

    They are just beautiful!

    I love them❤️

    We did indeed used to have a sort of activities/hobbies thread, but I can't find it just now. Nor remember it's title.

    We have a sculpturist for definite, some artists, horse riders and much much more.

    Thank you so much for showing us your gorgeous woodwork.
