I'm doing some spudding this week. I have been asked to debark some of the
olive wood logs left over from the demise of the
tree-that-invaded-our-sewer-line, to start them on their journey from
former tree to future rustic live-edge furniture accoutrement. I received
one in the mail, and I'll be making a handle for it this week, hewn from
the same tree. Hoping to retain most of my blood and all of my appendages.
I selected a spud over a drawknife because I'm hoping to peel, versus plane
off the bark. The bark peels pretty easily. I might have used a large
wooden spoon, but then this isn't the old spoons list.
