I like unquestionable things. Things you can count. Like the 30 years I’ve been carving. And all the tools I’ve accumulated in those years since someone gave me 4 gouges to start me off. 30 years is quite an army of years that I can use to fight the army of Imposter Syndrome thoughts which show no sign of dwindling. The battle continues.

first tools

These are my first tools. Thankyou R. I don’t remember how I made the mallet without carving tools! Probably with a saw and a file. These first gouges are well worn but still sharp enough, – just like me! Touch wood.
