« Part 17: Mads has arrived /French Plane Part 18 of Wheelchair Woodworking series Part 19: The Cabinet in Red »

Well what are your chances.

Traveling to Scotland and being kidnapped and taken tae the
“East Coast”
Oh! the photo, right I remember. This is Mads showing Ros one of the Jolly Rouges his Kayak in a bag Honest”, would I lie? If I dont forget
I’ll see if I can post a picture of it.
I think it was also where the kidnap plan was formed. Shirley will be involved
you can see the look. :)
Any way one minute Mads and I are chatting about fresh eggs over coffee
and tea.
I nip outside for a wee smoke. Is it not amazing how times change
You used to sit on a comfy chair and have a wee smoke and go outside for
a shit. Progress.
I wander, ok I get back and Mads is Gone, hat as well. Even the French plane
has gone
It was obvious though that it was a kidnap. You can ess in this picture that his
pipe and matches are left on the router table.

O that. It is a coat rack that I made It could not even be considered a project
it is just as the wood came. Well with a wee bit o tweaking. :)
Here is a better picture of it

The hooks were great, obviously reproduction even a corny 1883 on them but
I’ve got them just oiled along with the wood a good gloop o wax sludge Shirley likes it
But is still holding out for a new sink top
Well any sink top really

In case this is a picture taken of Mads b4 the kidnapping. Is there a sign in this picture,
Which is pointless now as he was not kidnapped.
Seems that Ros was going to her sisters in Edinburgh with her daughter Kali.
Well you would understand my worries as Ros is fae Dundee which is also East o us
Not that us on the West Coast dont trust them lol
He had a wonderful twa days in the capital taking 360 odd pictures, they are great I’m sure he will post them. Haven’t seen the French plane yet??

While trying to find some bench Space I came across my compound angle drilling
jig, might not sound grand but it does have the longest name. I use a cradle with it for
batch work.It works a treat and it can also work with sight lines that are common on
Windsor chair plans. It is just so big 24”x 24” If you have ever tried to free drill Elm you
will also know the importance of a stable drill platform. I also have a Radial Arm Drill that
also offers so many more angles. Just enough to confuse me every time. I always do a mock or dry run.
I just saw the ime just gone midnight here.
I will continue if I remember where I was.
I would have saved this but uploading pics twice?? No way.

Nice to get a summer visit, especially when it’s someone you like! Cool coat hanger, but my favorite has to be the drilling jig. It would be fun to see it in action sometime. Please continue having fun.
