The Grand Tour: Fife and Beyond

Ramblings of an inveterate cyclist

Thursday and a bit blowy and cold out but not a bad day. I did not go far, and on my arrival back home, what did I find behind the door? Yes, WHEELS ordered for the wagon. The paint is still a bit wet, and you can have it in any colour so long as it is red, for that is the last of the paint too.

Coming to the end of everything glue, paint, sandpaper, and room for all these stoor collectors. The girls have sold two of the Christmas trees and that is even before they have gone on display with the other goods they have produced for their Christmas sale of work, and all my cheese boards went in an instance (all money made will be going to HED). I think most of them were sold within the block along with a little stool. Had a bit of Oak left over so decided to make another cheese board with it, simple and easy to make, may keep that for myself as a chopping board.

Anyway, I shall not keep you in suspenders (that was deliberate) any longer, I know you have been waiting with bated breath to see the finished wagon, so here it is.

Keep well and keep safe.

    1. I grew up in a time when make do and mend was the only way, if you wanted a hut, you went down to where they were demolishing houses and came bag with enough timber to make one. same when I wanted my own dinghy, I bought plans and built one (with help from my big brother, he was doing his apprenticeship as a carpenter at that time). then when I left school I went into engineering, and that teaches you so much about accurate measuring, so all life skills, the youngsters today do not have that opportunity, they simply buy it online. But at the end of the day, it is all about just enjoying making things. Keep well, Walter
