« Part 52: Soon be able to think about woodwork again! Part 53 of Life as an Amateur Woodworker series Part 54: Two Quick Projects »

I actually finished the carport two days ago, which is just as well since, we have had tropical storms ever since.

Everything is painted, including the neighbours wall.

The bargeboards, guttering and downpipes are all installed along withThe cosmetic bits, such as hooks for the pool cleaning equipment.

Board inside to protect the car door.

The hanging tennis ball, to stop the wife driving through the back wall, much to the amusement of the dogs.

Will I now be able to spend time in the shop…I don’t think so, I have got some rendering to do on the house, but I am having a few days break first, to do some gardening, and get my papers together for the Colombian Tax Return!!

Looks good! A Colombian Tax Return? That is probably quite an experience? Hope you get to making sawdust. I have to do some repetitive drilling I had purchased hardware when I was making some money, and decided it is time to make my drill press table. I am doing my best to use what I’ve accumulated.

Thanks Tom, looking forward to seeing what you are up to!! :) Colombian Tax return is not too bad, you can’t do your own, you have to use an Accountant, and fortunately they are cheap, last year I didn’t have to pay anything, but now I own property I will probably have to, how much… I have no idea!
