Time marches on, and to be honest there is not a lot to report, I have been busy, but with mundane domestic tasks, cutting grass and hedges, lopping down, and pruning trees, alongside a bit of woodwork. Both our boys are getting on, Pepe because of his breed, and infirmities, Tito just because he willContinue reading “Catch up!”

Neighbours… Who would have them!?
Time is marching on, I have a feeling that Jaime is itching to move on from here, I may be wrong, but we are now having to closely monitor the projects, as they move on from one to another, without finishing off, it gets a bit frustrating, as well as difficult to monitor the costs.Continue reading “Neighbours… Who would have them!?”
Router Table Project
I decided that I wanted a new router table, I had one I made that I could put in the vice, it works, but is limited in what it can be used for, I found a plan I liked in Instructables, and to a greater extent followed it, which makes a change for me, inContinue reading “Router Table Project”
Love and Loyalty
I\’m all for love, and loyalty, but there are times when that can be taken too far. The local situation here is escalating, and not made any easier by a Government Department cutting corners. During the discussion we had with our \’enimigo\’ the other week, he accused us of having denounced him to Corantioquia forContinue reading “Love and Loyalty”
Phase Two Complete
Yesterday, I painted the cut plywood edges, unlike the previous unit, where I spray painted them, I decided that resulted in too much waste, so I mixed up some black gloss with \’desolvente\’, and brushed it on, it doesn\’t look any different to the sprayed, it just takes a while longer to dry. Today, IContinue reading “Phase Two Complete”
The Start of Phase Three
Time to start work again! I took the second desk from the Office to the workshop, and replaced it with the first \’support\’ The first job was to take it to bits, and cut it down to size, then reassemble it. I have decided that this desk, which will house storage for me, will beContinue reading “The Start of Phase Three”
I eventually bought my \’black\’ plywood last week, I bought three sheets of 18mm, which should be enough, to complete the project, the \’L\’ shaped desk, each sheet is 1.22m x 2.44m, fortunately one of the Storemen helped me load them into the trailer, along with a couple of 2x4s, it wasn\’t quite so easyContinue reading “Work Underway”
The Pirography Continues
I took the menu board to my neighbour, loved the logo, but did not like the square around it, she had asked for!!! I tried to sand it out, but as it was only 6mm plywood, that didn\’t work, it went through to the next layer! So much for the example being one of theContinue reading “The Pirography Continues”
I\’m getting there!
I had the operation on my right knee on 26th October, and it seems to have done the trick, I had to take it easy for the first two weeks, then I went back for a check-up, without my walking stick! I am now doing DIY therapy on the treadmill and in the swimming pool,Continue reading “I\’m getting there!”
Some light work!
I had my MRI on my knee, and unfortunately the right one is, to put it bluntly, knackered, so I have been put in for an operation, and I am just waiting for a date. This week I went to see a Neurosurgeon regarding my spine problems, he has ruled out surgery for now, heContinue reading “Some light work!”
