Chopping Boards

This past weekend saw the older two (Willow and Gabriel) and I head off to learn how to make chopping boards using traditional hand tools and recycled wood.  The whole experience was totally exhilarating, and I am looking forward to trying out another class later in the  year.

Willow's blue gum Chopping board.

Gabriel's jarrah chopping board.

Feature nail holes (Gabriel's piece of jarrah was once a beam in a house).

My she Oak chopping board, with uneven back.

Everyone is also onto some new work- Gabriel is doing some botany- we went for a sketching walk yesterday, and Willow is onto physics- starting with a week of sound experiments.  As usual there are lots of interesting things happening around here.
