Beautiful Inside and Out

I made a frame saw today, from a section of the old bandsaw blade and some scraps of oak. I cut the teeth by hand filing and set is yet to come. I have shaping to do, but the saw works fine already and the bandsaw blade was hard enough yet fileable without further hardening perhaps.

The time went so fast and everyone moaned when I said it’s time for home. DSC_0302Taking a walk through trees and yellow flowers that spring bears takes only a few minutes  and what refreshment that brings.

DSC_0394As I left the castle I saw seascape over toward Puffin Island and the Great Orme island. You are looking at the New Legacy workshop in Penrhyn Castle, bottom right. DSC_0395Turning around and facing the other way the view looks like this. My friend Rhian has a dairy farm with her husband and they just turned out the cows after winter indoors. DSC_0396It’s hard to imagine a more beautiful place to work. Philip manages to keep everyone on track and make his own pieces much the way I do. I feel rewarded on every front, whether inside or outside the Castle. How could I not be?
