Hi I'm Bardster. Frequenter of a fair few forums Wink
Interested in all things crafty and the outdoors side of life. I help run a magazine called The Bushcraft Magazine. I run the website and forum over there.... We like to think that we aim towards the country living/crafts side of bushcraft rather than the mainstream survival types so this forum is right up our street Smile Seems a great place and I hope it goes from strength to strength Smile

Welcome Bardster

Oddly enough I was just looking at an ad for Bushcraft magazine while flicking through Permaculture magazine in the littlest room of the house... Embarassed

The forum is essentially geared towards country crafts and voluntary simplicity, so you will fit in beautifully here Very Happy

Enjoy

Hello Bardster, welcome to one of my many hide-outs. Laughing

There's a great section here for heritage crafts, would you consider posting a bit about some of your stuff?

No doubt I will in time be posting plenty of crafty stuff Very Happy

Main thing is carving spoons and making bowls at the moment. http://crafts.probetech.co.uk if you want a look at my bowls etc.... I also do leatherworking, metal working and anything else I can think of really. Always said "Never done it before? Well lets have a go, after all what can go wrong?"

I loved you leather water bottles. That's another thing on my list to have a go at.

Welcome Bardster - just taken a look at your leather water bottles and they are beautiful. Have to admit that I've never seen anything like them before - stunning.

Hope you enjoy the forum!

And I don't eat seafood either...
