ideas of wood

My dad does some amazing things with wood.  As a little kid I remember the jigsaw puzzles he used to make for  my brother & I.  Now things he makes are a bit more upmarket.  Mum rolls her eyes & sighs each time he comes home with another piece of wood he has found or scavenged, his eyes bright with the planned bowl he might work from it.  Poor dad, it's not the sort of hobby you can do on the quiet.  After-all,  it is a bit hard to hide a tree stump in the boot!

I must take and upload some pictures soon of some of the pieces he has gifted to me....

Anyhow, the reason I am thinking of dad's wood collection is having come across this clever little rustic pencil holder on another blog tonight.  I might just have to ask dad for a suitable off-cut to make one myself at some point....or maybe he will do it for me??
