Activities at The Castle this couple of weeks have been fairly hectic,if it was not my Son building stuff it was me.
Lots of noise, and saw dust, even got some on Aurora’s washing ….Grrrr, otherwise lotta fun.
The Duck Box.
A family friend MCs kids have some chooks and now two Ducks have been added to the Pen.
As ducks sleep on the ground as opposed to roosting like the Chooks he asked me to make a three sided box for them 600mm x 400mm.
This was the result.
It’s the “Smiths Crisps” Pallet again! along with some OSB off cuts utilised.
The internal chamfered edging was the off cuts from my OSB ute box moulding recycled.
After I built it I realised they will need a ramp to get in for a while,... so I added a ramp.
Its removable via two screws at the front.
It will be inside the “Chook Pen” so its another experimental item for my OSB duration testing.
Speaking of OSB a friend from came by and we got talking about OSB as it happens he has OSB on the floor of his lounge andits been there for 30 Years! what a surprise, I had never noticed next time I am there I will pay more attention to his floor.
A coat of sanding sealer and its done, not sure if the family will decorate it or not.
I will see if I can get a picture of it occupied after its delivery.
Well thats enough PC based wood working back to it!
