« Part 4: Zen and the art of woodworking Part 5 of General musings series Part 6: Two years on »

I’ve not posted a project for a few days. I’ve not even got started on the Accordion refurb’ yet. The reasons are various; a cold all over Christmas, playing with new designs in my head and building something. I started my current project on the 4th of December and I’m only half way through. Unusual for me but this one requires thought, taking my time, a lot of jigs to be made and a heck of a lot of work. Your only clue is that I hope I get it finished this month. I will not be revealing what it is until I post it, if it works and I don’t screw it up.

Meanwhile this is my 3000th post!

In 700 Days.

Don’t time fly when you’re having fun.

Congrats Martyn.
Who says LJ’s is addictive?

I’ll be watching and waiting with bated breath.
