Hornbeam Trencher

Tom BartlettComment
I'm in the process of carving a large trencher bowl from a hornbeam log I've had sitting out for probably a little too long. I've been at it with my adze and now I'm smoothing the inside with a curved gouge before working on the outside shape. It's important to finish the inside first as it's easiest to do so whilst the bowl still has a lot of mass and is less likely to move around.
