Demonstrations

After studying early woodworking techniques for many years gathering the knowledge and theĀ  authentic tools I can now offer demonstrations to historical sites. I like to show that many items can be made with very few hand tools from log to finished piece and can demonstrate all the methods required.
Starting with splitting a log with wedges and a mallet roughing out parts with an axe and finishing on a shaving horse we can produce stools, small tables, kitchenware, tool handles etc while the public watch. Producing some of these things is time consuming so I have several examples on display. I discuss aspects of woodworking in the medieval period including the different trades, the tools and techniques. To some extent we can also let the public have a go.
