With the recent good weather..
I headed out into the countryside in the evening..
And saw all this...
And today at the car booty I got a little set of handmade calipers..

I painted the slab pig..
Well the legs and the underside ...
The top got an antifungal treatment then some teak oil...
It's looking pretty neat now..
This morning at the flea market - carboot sale...
I bought this little hatchet stamped Gem..
It never looked like this..
In a bucket with rusty spanners..
But with some elbow grease...;b

Side Tracked Again

Yeah yeah, side tracked again...

With the all the good weather over Easter...
I was inspired to make this..
But it rained all this weekend while making this slab bench, can't be sunny all the time.... ;)
Note the string line and level for marking the leg height and angle..., Also called a slab pig from way back in the day in old logging camps or bunk houses....;b

Back On The Ripples

It's taken a few weeks..
But I got started back on the rippled sycamore cabinet..
More rebating by hand of course..
And I got the floorboard bookcase in place..
Happy easter folks..;b
