Inspired by a memory of someone I met in my dim distant past, when I recently chanced across the track Stainsby Girls by Chris Rea (circa 1985). I fell in love with a Stainsby girl.

Oops, I slipped and screwed up the lid
So I made another and did a dry fit of the legs and handles
Not sure how many more I can make with Pau Amarello. Its dust sets off rhinitis in me and there are two days of hell after I work it.
More nonsense to follow.
