Here's a little coveing on our new green Woodworking building at Wooplaw.
We've still to put pole lathes, breaks etc... into it.
The larch shingles inside it are now on the roof.
Last layer put on in horizontal snow.

Finally dug out my shop and got some work done. Need really sharp tools for this as well as a delicate stroke.

Now, I wonder how to get hold of those Ice Palace folks in Helsinki. I might have a market niche that might interest them.
