  1. There's still a few loose ends to tie up but I'm pretty much there
  2. Nothing to put on them 😁 In an ideal world I would have done so, time is against me, the priority is to make instruments asap. I'm doing a trade stand at a festival next month and I need stock. The work bench by the window has storage shelves built in so I don't need much right now. I still have to move the bandsaw and some of the plastic shelves from my mother's shed and I'm planning some sort of rack for work in progress.
  3. Finally moving out of here: Into here: Total chaos 😁
  4. Looks like I'll have to fold, all I have is a Bolder and Bowie
  5. Rutgar Gunnarsson - it doesn't matter what pose you strike, what bass you play, what you wear , you'll never be as cool as the guy playing bass for ABBA.
  6. Glenn Kornick - so uncool he's cool.
  7. Paul Simonon's unusual playing style and curly lead was considered cool enough for this cover shot.
  8. You can impress the crowd in Lichtenstein by playing their national anthem....you already know the tune.
  9. I do specializing in relcaimed timber. www.scavengermusic.co.uk
  10. The electrician has done the first fix and I've been busy with the lining. The Tate have already shown an interest in my latest installation.
  11. Yes ...42 Metres . Another 9 barrow loads of earth removed from "The Slot" as I've come to call it. I have to stand with one leg in the hole to dig, for some reason it makes my buttocks ache like crazy. I'll should finish the digging this afternoon or tomorrow.
  12. What is the most satisfying thing about making instruments? - Digging, it's all about the digging. Electrician number two has put in a quote and can start next month. Before then I have to dig a trench for the cable not less than 60cm deep. As we are also putting power into the summer house I have another 30' stretch to do as well. I'm on s budget so it's just me with s pick and shovel. I'm done for the day , lying down in a dark studio for a while.
  13. Partly inspired by some houses I saw build a few years ago. They were built on precast concrete "rafts". My walls sit on the edge of a wooden raft with the floor inside so any water running down the walls is already bellow the floor by the time it reaches the bottom of the wall. this is the insulation: https://www.screwfix.com/p/ybs-airtec-double-reflective-foil-insulation-25-x-1-5m/50913?tc=HA3&ds_kid=92700058021678550&ds_rl=1249407&ds_rl=1241687&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1245250&gclid=CjwKCAjw7diEBhB-EiwAskVi17gya7l5DsRsy2QE1yOavmmU3EUoJ4zih9YBIaMmYgmxSmbyoM4TyRoC6ocQAvD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
  14. BBC slashes budget for Dr Who sets And I'm still waiting for the electrician..
