Great clip from the second part of Alone in the Wilderness, in which Dick Proenneke carves a wooden spoon with his axe.

Did you know that all our wooden items are made entirely by hand from trees felled with axes and hard work, and that many of the objects may possess magical properties, and that they make excellent Christmas gifts for people who appreciate the great outdoors and things that look nice? Did you also know we have 15% off everything plus free UK delivery until tomorrow?

The polerstuff Magic Tarpit is highly recommended for insulating yourself against the cold ground whilst changing post-surf. We use them on our workshops for sitting on, carrying wood, wearing in downpours and they are awesome. Get one!

It was the FINAL Woodland Woodcarving Workshop of the year on Saturday! Thank you to everyone who came along; it was super fun as usual and there were some great finished pieces despite having to dodge a few heavy showers. I’ll be updating the Workshop page on our site soon with details of future dates and special one-off events. Keep ‘em peeled.
