Things are coming along in the area being coppiced this winter. Just need to mark out which trees will be left and which will be coppiced.

Viking cups

Been making some Viking coppergate cups from York today. I forgot how much I enjoy turning these greenwood cups are. Fingers crossed they don’t crack.
When they are dry I will boil them in bees wax to waterproof them.

Three legged stools were traditionally used for milking on uneven ground. Three legs don’t wobble like four. These stool are a commission for a woodland classroom.
