I have just completed an Apple wood spoon as a commission to have the letters LMH burned into it.
A rather dainty looking thing.
So as my carpentry skills seem to be increasing, so do the jobs which I have to do. Ordinarily these types of jobs would be done by my very capable dad – but due to ever worsening health I am happy to do these tasks.
This task (which will be done next weekend) is one for my Nan (who I loathe) is to replace the rotten and fairly discusting old fence and hand rail on some steps. This will involve a load of new posts which will be concreted in (for once) and 2 rails along the side to make it easier for my nan. Then, after all the construction, I will place liberal amounts of wood varnish on it to make sure its sealed from the weather.
Its all experience I suppose.
