wood nerds version.
1. Holdfast and possible nail cutting…
2. Flyswatter and tools.
3. Flap from leather.
4. Turkish saw in action.
5. Holdfast on a chair.
6. Less is enough.
Hi LJ’s here a little looking back at my summer in Turkey.
I basically did no woodworking. It was hot, a normal day temperature was 33 ℃ / 92 ℉, I love this due to the fact I have chronic pain after a spinal neck operation and in the hot dry climate I had only little pain from muscles and nerves but it was too hot for working wood in the day time for a Viking from North.
My summer hide out in Turkey and my old Jawa.
But yes a little was done, like converting this wood from a beehive frame and a leather left over from a local shoemaker into a flyswatter.
Have to say it’s the best flyswatter I ever had, it hits fast and hard, so it was worth a little sweat and was in use every day for the rest of the summer.
Ohhh yes and I have to say I like it better than the ugly blue electric one it replaced.
I tell more in this little blog: http://lumberjocks.com/mafe/blog/91866
Hope it can inspire others to hold some wood and swat a fly…
