I need more room!
This is a nine by sixteen shed, and I need a bigger shed! This is planned for this year, so watch this space!
I’ve just come back from Portugal, We were there for three months.
I don’t like the winter!
We were ready to come back home, and then the volcano exploded! The ash kept us in Portugal for another six days!
The candlesticks are made from oak, and the bowls are apple and sycamore. The bowl is sycamore with a hazel lid.
I cut the bowls wet last year, and left them to dry over the winter. All local woods!
See ya later!

I particularly like your candle sticks. That is an interesting an creative design. The bowls are also nice.

I like the form of the candle sticks and I dont know about anyone else, but I see mountains in the second picture of the shallow bowl standing upright (is that one apple?)

nice work
