A few months ago I made 2 cups of coffee & a packet of biscuits, please.
That was, really, just a bit of fun – but, in fact, it’s proved to be really really useful – every day it isn’t raning, which is most days at the moment, we use it to take our coffee (and biscuits) out into the fields for the evening wind-down cuppa.
Next month we’re off on a trip to see some friends, and I thought that they might like one too – so here it is.
Since this one is for a present, and not just for fun, I figured I ought to try and make a slightly “nicer” once – and incorporate some of the “suspended” ideas that I was playing with a while back. I also wanted to give the not-box-joint-jig a bit more of a run – it’s good to have that kind of firepower in my arsenal.
I am also, I think, getting a bit better at project planing – where will the tear-out be? Where will it snipe? I’m now starting to think a bit more ahead to legislate for those things happening so, for example, the tearout will get cut off later, or be hidden underneath.
It’s pine and jatoba – hot linseed oil finish, though I may add some danish to give it more water protection.
Size: 3 mugs wide x 1 mug wide x 1 mug and bit high
As is always the case – feel free to make any form of comment – positive or negative – as long as it doesn’t include the result of any upcoming rugby matches.
