So, the first ripe blueberries arrived. I have about eight bushes, and two little ones that haven't produced any yet-They were scrawny cheap lil' fellas. Hopefully with the nice soil I gave them they'll produce next year.
So, here's a nice picture for Jason: I was talking earlier about a little anvil for setting saws, and he thought I meant a stump anvil- like this kind: http://www.oldworldanvils.com/anvils/stump.html. Well, there's the picture, straight from Old Ways of Working Wood. This is a GREAT book for Western woodworkers. Simply wonderful, I love the hand drawn illustrations. Almost nothing about Eastern styles, though, just a brief mention that Eastern woodworkers stuck with pull saws, even after the Catalan furnace was invented in the 14th century; he thinks it's a possibility that pull saws are prevalent in the 'Orient' due to the stronger influence of tradition.
It also has great plans on making a pole lathe and a treadle lathe! Thinking of making a pole lathe if I ever get the space...Will need some way to make handles.
Not much woodworking today, besides starting a pyrography picture.
