procraftination supplies

Is this what you call it when you're carving your donation for an event in your tent the night before, or when you're carving and the dishes have reached the ceiling. For the record, either one works for me.

Don't worry about having to go back to your other tools. I am still using my first Staelders, with periodic honing to slick up the blades. I stopped counting carves after I passed 200 and something, and I'm nearing the end of my third carves logbook, each with 100 pages, and some pages have more than one stamp image.

Yes, they will go on forever. Will anyone fess up to throwing them away when they got dull (back when they were plentiful).

Someday I'll get my inky hands on some...
Why were they even stopped in the first place?

Think, carving when the dishes have piled up to the ceiling. You finally stop to do the dishes, and suddenly you're inspired to do a still life carving of said dish pile. You go carve it, and hours later return to tackle those dishes. You turn the water on, and think, "Water! I have to go see what that carve looks like watercolored real quick..."

...but I agree that either use works ;)

Don't listen to anyone. Wait for the antiques roadshow to come through.
