Workshop

With our cold, and rainy weather right now the workshop is the perfect place to be. The work in progress are a pair of sawhorses constructed with joinery – mortised, tenoned and wedged with no glue, nails or screws. I have spent my life telling myself I didn’t have the precision to do such work but when I recently reached the ripe age of 65 I figured what the heck. Lo and behold they are turning out okay. Just goes to show we are usually our own worst enemies.

Bird Bath (2 photos)

I thought I would try doing some photos using a long USB cable from my camera to my laptop. I had limited success. I think the USB is too long and transferring data from the camera to the laptop would sometimes crash the program. However I did manage to get some shy birds bathing and I can see the potential shooting remotely if I can work out the bugs.
