Serving Up a New Order

Just as I’m slowly making my way back in to the workshop, it seems as though the list of kitchen items to make is on the agenda!

Through the power of YouTube and my Facebook Page combined (do not underestimate their power), I’ve picked up a commission for a few end-grain cutting boards and a pair of knife blocks too! You can be sure you’ll get to read about all of that as and when it happens. If I have time, I’ll even try to shoot some new video footage.

Yes, I initially did a three-part series on making similar boards from beech, which you can still find over on my channel. But, through watching many other videos and experimenting with my own recent efforts, I feel I’ve already learnt a lot about this ‘art’ of communication and sharing. People don’t really want to watch you endlessly resawing wood and not everyone enjoys the music that you might like… Some prefer no music at all. People tune because they share an interest. Because they’re keen to see and willing to learn. That’s my impression and I’m happy to help however I can.
