I've been real slack with my GoodWood Blog, so here is a quick up to date view of my flat out-busyness
Above and below is a lovely pump room for a pool .
The frame is oak and the weatherboard is sweet chestnut .
Oak pergola and glazed veranda .
A bloody amazing table that I made for a good friend. Chocolate Pete made the yolks (triple trees if your a merkin.) for my choppa so I owed him something equally cool. I think I may have nailed it , even if I do say so myself.
These last 2weeks I've been jumping between projects .
The first is these louvred windows that I am making for the Boathouse. They are western red cedar and there will 4 of these double openable windows and 3 single non-opening windows.
These windows have been a good stretch for my brain. Making templates for my router and trying to come up with the most eficient use of the table saw to quickly produce these.
This is veranda that Was built by the company I used to work for . But I have been commissioned to add studs and glaze the open end to make it a more useable room.
I'm just waiting for the glass now.
This is a two storey extension that I am building at the moment . It's very difficult to get a flattering photo as it is surrounded by scaffold. I am also waiting for some glass for this , then I can glaze the screen that you see below.
This is a project that I have been designing and working toward for nearly a year.
We had to meet the spider crane at 5am as we were going to block the road for a few hours as we lifted all the timber down onto the slab.
Redneck travelling. It's always fun to ride on a trailor
Lifting the oak down onto the slab . The thought of getting this timber onto a very hard to reach site gave me many sleepless nights, but it went like clockwork.
1st components of frame going up. Of coarse it was going to fit.
This was my office for the week and will continue to be that way for the newt few weeks. Due to my leg still being week I have to direct and not be fitting. It's driving me nuts but I can't rush the leg mending.
Watching my team working hard gives me a great feeling . Well done fellas, it's almost worth all the crap and piss taking that I have to put up with.
Bodders "Topping off" the frame . This keeps the spirits away . We only do this if the clients bring us lots of tea and biscuits.
Last day this week and it pissed down.
Never mind , plenty more days to come. Keep posted.
