So here's a pic of my humble little nook. The straights shown are of my own making they are 5160 Spring Steel (Chevy truck) lol! Hand forged the antler handled one is L6 saw blade steel and was my first attempt at a full wedge. I also have a great scuttle from Robert Becker feats of clay... the mug in this photo is white China clay that I made in my ceramics days the bowl is a stoneware one I also made as you can tell I love making my own stuff! [Image: 20131123_213440_zps3a26e70d.jpg] should've said the soap in the China mug is MWF love the fat! And the bowl has a puck of TOBS Sandalwood! Thanks for lookin! Comments welcomed!
