The one advantage of the downtime I've had meant that I could finish all the presents for Christmas.
These ranged from silly little snowmen tree decorations for the ladies in my life:
To a cold frame for my mum (I forgot to take a picture of it finished):
To a bowl from a Alder burr for my wife using a tree my brother cut down 6 years ago on the farm (quite pleased with this as its my first bowl and quite tough wood):
To a carving gouge with a new handle (and a little round mallet to go with it - no picture again) for my brother:
I've also got 2 raised vegetable beds to make for the mothering law but it's not really the right time of year for that. I hope people don't mind homemade gifts
