A day in the life
I’ve done this once before and for some reason many seemed to enjoy it. It’s not about carving but about other facets that surround carving and places I end up. So, A day in my life.
Carving I always find interesting but there are other things that happen along the way, people, places and things that get my juices flowing. Maybe you might find this as well. In my career there are many paths I’ve crossed where I’m fascinated by how they got to where they are and what they do. You may have the same type experiences as I do and meet just as interesting people and go to places that are just as much fun,,, but I just feel like writing about these things.
The day started out very typically, for a carver. Check e-mails, follow up with some calls etc. Then settle down to some carving. Spent 15 minutes or so resharpening the dozen or so chisels ( only because I thought of it before actually carving) that I’m using heavily on this current project. It’s the Wisteria Desk. I don’t currently have a story on that , but will, once it’s done. Spent the morning carving, thinking about several other jobs that just hit and what I’ll need for them. Decided that after lunch I’ll head out and pick up at least some of the wood for a job that for some reason has to be done yesterday. Ate lunch, made a pot of Beef vegetable soup for dinner and off I went.
