Some Images from Today

Well, the shop is nice, I must say. It’s warm and bright with the new colours and there’s space for people and things I like in there around me.

  • Samuel on George Leaves…I did a trade and was very conscious of the difference between a good teacher and not. A lot of the time you are just sidelined and there is no skill appropriate learning curve on…
  • Dan Miller on Finishing Your WoodThe best book on finishing is "Understanding Wood Finishing" by Bob Flexner. There is a tremendous amount of misinformation as well as mis-labeling when it comes to finishing and f…

  • Bill Skinner on A Poor Man’s Raspy ThingyTry using double sided carpet tape. Works great and you don't have to worry about the glue drying up. No high spots either.
  • Christopher Jackson on George Leaves…I am old. I did "woodwork" at school (1950s) and hated it, twas so so difficult. Over the years I dabbled and made, with far too much effort, a few only just about acceptable piece…
