Not much in the woodwork line today. Its Sue and my 15th wedding anniversary today. This coincides with the 50th birthday party for the company I work for, Mole Valley Farmers. Their party is down in Torquay so off we go.
Had an eye test, last week and I need new glasses. They’ll be calling me Pebbles before long. Not surprising with the sort of woodwork I do. Should pick them up next Thursday.
There was a project posted recently of a 2 cubic inch box. My little Bess Ring box comes in at just over 3 cu”.
There’s a challenge to go for. Looking at combining this with a bit of Tonbridgeware patterning (small pictures made up of tiny squares, sort of pixellated). I believe the Tonbridge referred to in the name is the same one that’s in my home County of Kent. Nice tie-in. This might also lead to a new jig for cutting small strips of wood on the tablesaw (safely).
Apologies to Jordan but the shoe is on the back burner at the moment, what with the planning for the above and some Parquetry veneering patterns that won’t leave me alone. I have to take the active, upswing, mood whilst its there.
