    New furniture and next year's courses

    I've been working on some interesting projects the last few months. In the main image is a pair of bar stools that turned out nicely. I used traditional milk paint on them, the first time I've done this. The effect is rather pleasing.

    Chair-making hits London

    Getting crafty in Crystal Palace

    Courses at my London workshop in Crystal Palace are gathering momentum nicely. I’ve had the first two – a taster session then a stool-making course that finished last week. Both went down really well – axes swinging, shavings flying and everyone getting properly stuck in.
