Good day today. I cut down the shelf which will sit inside the cabinet, and will finish trimming the size on the next day. The bottom rails are both in, so once any odd surfaces are planed to fit, this cabinet can be glued up and I can move onto the final part, the dovetailed drawer.
We finished this year with a good few drinks in a Whitechapel pub round the corner. Conversation covered walks that takes in Dicken’s’ landmarks mentioned in ‘Great Expectations’. Heirloom pieces of furniture, ie are people now buying for quality and craftsmanship, rather than just for low price? And general chat about violins, with the instrument makers who also take up a part of the college’s space. I’ve always wanted to make a violin, perhaps that should be my next course?
Merry Christmas to one and all. Thanks for reading!
