It’s Art Week here at the Sylva Wood Centre. The doors are open to the public and the various tenants are putting their handiwork on display. Here’s a snippet from our corner of the building, courtesy of Paul’s Instagram account:
You can see some of the pieces Paul has produced for Woodworking Masterclasses and, behind them, the beginnings of the display of our neighbours at Oxford Oak. But they are not the only ones who are exhibiting this week, as we have also had a bumper batch of submissions to our photo gallery. Take a look…

Stars by Kim Dufore
I have been having fun with the Stars. Doing everything from sharpening the hand saws, chisels and planes from Paul’s videos. I even made a shooting board and miter box. I do enjoy working with wood after 39 years as a brick mason.
