Medieval Interests

Yes, I'm in the SCA

If you play, you may know me as Dofinn-Hallr Morrisson of the Shire of Frosted Hills. Thora is posting several of her articles on the web.

If you are interested in the local shire you can write the Seneschal at fh-seneschal@drakkar.org if you have any trouble contacting him, send a note to me.


I am slowly trying to gather most of the tools available to the 10th century Northern European woodworker. Over the last two years I have been working with a foot powered reciprocating lathe and have recently started turning bowls.

If you have any experience with spoonbits, pole lathes, frame saws, side axes or adzes, please write me. I would like to exchange information with you.

Prior to the current lathe craze, I put together several Sutton Hoo style lyres and have extensive research on how to make, play and tune them. I have also built several other instruments from that time period and would happy to share the info.

I have finally posted an old A&S article on the history and construction of waxed writing tablets. If you want to find out about them or see my old article on how to make them, that is now on line at http://www.cs.vassar.edu/~capriest/tablets.html.
(ok, that's long enough, go back to what you were doing)
