I decided not to get involved with any of the Easter traffic on the roads so I went to my waste bin and persuaded myself to part with these offcuts.
(I only put two pieces back in the waste bin) I estimate that there was 2 cu.ft of timber thrown out when loaded into a waste sack :oops:


Then I thought it would be a good idea to make three storage boxes to store a palm sander, stapler and a box of router bits.

But I chickened out and found three nice cardboard cartons ex supermarket throw outs and there had a well earned rest instead :roll: :roll:

Spent most of the day surveying 10 km of the local trout river (within view of this house) for fishing spots, and several lakes, large and small around the local Danube feeder area.

Will try and get some pictures of the local woodworkers (or at least their efforts) this next week for posting when I get back home they have certainly been Beavering around on the local River banks.

Now that's what I should have been doing, DW. Instead of which I spent the day wrestling with a rusted-up nut on a hand-cranked grinder. Not like it's even a particularly good grinder. ](*,)

Cheers, Alf

D Dubya,
Why didn't you trim and join all those offcuts
to make your boxes :roll: :wink:
I'd far prefer that than having just spent all day working :x

Philly,

Bad luck for your family and perhaps even worse luck for you! I hope they are better now and that you don't come down with it this week!

Devonwoody,

the length is just over 17ft, with just under 12, should have been 18x13 but the builder who laid the base was incompentent in the use of measuring devices and I was away while he was doing it. Ho Hum!
