I like to make stuff every chance I get. Making is a part of my identity and it goes a long way towards maintaining my mental health. Just before the COVID-19 pandemic began, I picked up some carving tools and attended a few spoon carving group activities. Originally I intended to use it to teach knife skills to our scouts and to have something to work on next to the campfire. I’ve carved a few times while quarantining, but finally had a chance to spoon carve socially in 2022. I won’t claim to be any good at it, but I’m certainly having fun learning.
