myhy-designs asked: Hi there. Your spoons are impressive and I love checking out your work. I am writing because I inherited a large toolbox of woodcarving knives from my grandpa who was a whittler, but I'm more interested in spoon and bowl carving and the one knife I didn't get from him was a curved spoon knife. Wondering if you could suggest one? Do you use one sided or two? Thanks! David
Thanks for getting in touch. I use a hook knife from Nic Westerman, damned good knives and highly recommended from me and others. Single sided, left or right hand will get the job done. Here is a link to a page on my blog http://www.spooncarvingfirststeps.com/p/blog-page_4.html
Have a look, there are contact details. Any probs, give me a shout. Best wishes. Jon Mac.
Atelier 4/5 is, in other words, design for everyone. Simple operations on old items found on the flee market are the basis of their craft. They indeed aim at giving a second life to objects having an interesting forms or texture. A bit of restoration can get a furniture or a lamp a second wind, but it is often the combination between the old piece and a contemporary touch that will give the contrast and bring forward the original item. By means of examples, fruit crates becomes a storage furniture, an old champagne case is the basic element for a low table, or then again an old dressing screen is transformed into a shelf. Atelier 4/5 strives to re-use everything in the surrounding and creates unique pieces. Unpretentiously, they fight against the actual extreme consumption tendency and suggest a reflexion on our relationship towards material goods. (via Atelier 4/5)
Transportation Security Administration agents take the woman to a room and order her to take off her blouse. Then her bra. Then her prosthesis, which they examine. The elderly woman strips to her waist, with nothing to hide her scars.
This is shameful.

People do not drift toward holiness. Apart from grace-driven effort, people do not gravitate toward godliness, prayer, obedience to Scripture, faith, and delight in the Lord. We drift toward compromise and call it tolerance; we drift toward disobedience and call it freedom; we drift toward superstition and call it faith. We cherish the indiscipline of lost self-control and call it relaxation; we slouch toward prayerlessness and delude ourselves into thinking we have escaped legalism; we slide toward godlessness and convince ourselves we have been liberated.
