Just an update – So many requests to see the “YARD WORK” so some attached photographs, now the spring has eventually come.

Hi Folks

We have had a holiday weekend ( 4 days) here and the wife is away, but I have no time to play! I promised her I would not go into the workshop, this weekend, but I would do lots and lots of yard work, so here is the result of some of the yard work.

Pöydät ja Tuolit, this is Finnish for Table & Chairs, which is the name of my company, the woodpecker is my trademark and the lower sign is the street name and number in my village.

The Post is a little over 2.4 m high and is 90mm x 90mm (Pine). The three signs together measure 1.7m high x 400mm wide Each sign is made from 12mm Birch plywood, and the frame is quarter sawn Birch, the lettering is 6mm walnut. This was my first attempt with a new scroll saw. The Finish is Brushed poly – Oh yes and real brass chain and hooks

PS, I did finish off the rest of the yard work first.

WELCOME

Nice digs Tony! You are a wise man to do the yard work first.

Don has his Australian slang type of dictionary, now we know a few Finnish words. Who says we are too old to learn? Martin, you’re next with some Slovakian woodworking terms. All I know is “Hoosier Talk”, we just pronounce most all words wrong.

What a great shop and house. I would love to work and live in a setting like that, except for all your cold weather.

Thanks for all the nice comments – Grass cutting 3 times a week

I’ll post the chair and matching Table in a few weeks when they are finished!

It is 25 to 30° for the last few weeks, it has been great. It only gets cold here once a year, it just lasts for 6 months! October to March

Great sign. And the surroundings around it.
