Does long road trip mean no carving?

      I swear by my carving apron. I tried several designs and settled on a simple design, no pockets, just wide enough to cover my legs and long enough to go beyond my knees. The one I use most often is made of deerskin with the chest area of elk hide, to resist cuts and protect my chest. The deer hide lets the chips slide smoothly into a pile and easy to empty as the fibers of the wood chips can't catch or snag as they do with a cotton or canvas apron.

      Before they slip me over the standing part of the fore sheet, let them pipe: "Up Spirits" one more time.

          I used to drive like Hello from Point A to Point B and some of those days were long ones.
          Now, I limit my drives to 250 miles/400 km. Leaves daylight carving time in the summer.
          I take only simple hand work or I'd have to haul along half my shop.
          I won't carve if I'm visiting and my host is home.

          Last few trips, I did take tools and wood and didn't get a thing done at all. Didn't care.

              Thank you. I just bought one.
