    Brownie points

    Turning has slowed down for a week or so now as I have been gardening (removing a cherry tree mainly) and repairing a couple of benches which I have just managed to complete.

    The pile of wood I was given which I spent last week cutting into the correct size and drilling holes. Then over the weekend I gave them a few coats of oil and let them dry and today assembled the two benches, I think they look pretty good and they have now earned me some extra brownie points

    Thanks guys. I have had these for quite a while and just left them too long before repairing them. I am trying to have a big sort out in the garden even taking down a cherry tree and yet still have a very large conifer as well as a pear tree which does not bear any fruit
