Well, actually the S word, but the S word is part of the F word anyway…..............................????

I need all the help I can get…..I do have the Wood Spirit looking out for me…..or is it that fellow that sits on our shoulders….

Busy sanding a 4.1m long African mahogany top for a very long built in desk with drawers. 4.1m is about 161 inches for those who still prefer to measure with King George’s thumb……I think it was his thumb, I know it was some king’s thumb….what did King George have to do with woodworking anyway….

PS. The F word is Finishing if you didn’t figure it!!!!!!!!

We all know how much you like to F’n S!
If I were you, I’d press Wood Spirit into more service by handing him/her a sanding block. I’ts one thing to be looking out for you, it’s quite another to have an intern.

That’s one mighty big desk! Must be for a really busy person.

I don’t need one of those. One dummy in the shop is enough for me, ha ha.

Yes, I understand this F/S word very well. Rarely have i tackled it with ninja – like stealth, more like reluctant determination. How many times have I heard, ” a good finish is all in the surface preparation” ????

Div!!!
You really need HELP I think it’s too late for medicine, too late for wood spirits, perhaps even too late for us here, so you need to go back to the house to that beautiful wife of yours, and ask for the final solution, the only way out! Love, plenty of love and then your wonderful daughters to make you a glass of something good.

(I love those pictures and Caroline and I laughed big time here in Paris – thank you).
I cant stop to look at all that beautiful wood in the work shop.
Just before I leave you in the dust I only have one question; what was it this F word?
Best thoughts from my heart my so wonderful brother,

Don’t you think she will do whatever it takes to get me to look better than what I do in the photo? I mean, she does love me, right? :)
