Picture of the Day
January 11, 2019

in the morning we gathered
around the dining table and
practiced lashing with small
sticks and twine, then went
out to glean straight fallen
tree limbs from 1 to 3 inches
in diameter and 6 feet long to
lash a pole frame for thatching
demonstration and practice.
we debarked them with a
drawknife, as shown here.
i also worked on some pegs,
using a shaving horse for the
first time. one of its legs fell
off but i didn't have to shoot
it; just reattached it and got
right back on. pascal showed
us a sample of his animation
work. it was a day of gentle
labors and small wonders but
we all got pretty tuckered out.
