    Default DIY carving tools

    Got fed up with the dowling & odd bits of broom handle on my whittling tools so while in a handle making mood turned up these.

    Also dumped the old cigar box container and made a pig-skin tool roll.
    The business ends of the chisels are carbon steel, mostly old needle files ground to suit.
    Holidays are a good time for whittling, in a couple of weeks I should be chipping away in the French countryside with a glass of decent red close to hand

    Tried to pick some woods with interesting figure, there is Plum, Box burr, Cherry, Amarillo, Rosewood, Yew & a branch from my neighbour's cotoneaster that leaned a bit too far into my yard. One thing about handles is that you can use small branch stuff.
    The one with the face is a bit of lamb leg bone that was cooked on a scout camp fire more years ago than I care to think about.

    Cool tools Mark love the bone face handle and I bet they are just as good as Pfifer ones
    Being down is the low side of being up it shows the road ahead is a steep climb but at the top the view is always special. Then we just coast along till we hit the trough again. Sometimes when coasting we pick up speed and the steep climbs pass by like your on a plain.
