Arbutus Wood Carving
Found a nice straight piece of arbutus trimmed off a tree at the side of the road, it is about 5 inches in diameter and about 30 inches long.
I have always wanted to make some arbutus utensils though this piece may be too big...?
My question: what is the best way to break this down into smaller utensil size portions? axe? machinery? I am new to wood working and many of its tools. Any tips appreciated.
