Greenish antics – frugal, growing, trying and sharing

No diggity and improving the bodgeness… November 26, 2007

Filed under: Allotment,Woodcraftyness — Canvas Summer Nige @ 10:23 am

A busy weekend was had, with some good action in the allotment (c/o of the big sofa company providing resources – thanks v v v much R and T).  Now the plot is expanded and a new path created, ready for the frost to break up the soil a bit for me.  I’m hoping to get a load of mushroom compost procured too to mulch on top over winter as well.  Unfortunatly it was dark when we finished so I’ll need to get a picture some other time – for now a distance shot of the workers!

Then the other major success of the weekend was a master-class in non-bodge woodwork.  Including the output of an excellent toy oven for baby’s bday or christmas present (TBD), and a shelf/cupboard to complete the kitchen storage antics.  Thanks to R for his tools, his calmn doggedness and guiding me through fine planed edges.

A pic of the work in progress:

We’ll get it painted and take another pic of the completed model maybe when she gets in in December.

    No worries Nigey! Work paid for by superb chicken lunch tea and amazing banana cake – plus we got to inhale some real fresh air, unpolluted by nasty city smog. Result.

    How cute is the oven! Very impressed.
