But there is a free event that is hand tool related in Memphis, TN this Saturday (May 16, 2015) at 10:30. I will be giving a demo called “making a spatula from firewood” at the woodwork shop. I know that spoon carving is all the rage, but spatulas are fast and easy. There is no bowl so I carve the whole thing with a draw knife.
The Saturday demo’s are a great format and are always fun. I’ve done a few on hand planes and I’m always surprised by how many people show up. Must be because it’s free.
Anyway, I asked Mrs Rita if I could do something different this time and she encouraged this. If the demo generates enough interest she may offer it as a Monday night class. How would you like to leave a Monday night class with something you made that night?
So, if you can’t go to Handworks this weekend, come to the wood work shop and commiserate with some like minded folks.
