It seems a mighty long time since I made a post, but now that I'm officially retired I'm trying to change my lifestyle. For the last 60 odd years I've been dashing about like a blue arsed fly trying to make a few pounds and make people happy. Well, other people's happiness will always be high on my agenda but my blue arsed days are over, it's time to grab a hold of mellowness and dance off with it into the sunset.
Anyway, in my last post I showed you a picture of the oyster box that I was making. It looked great but the hinges didn't work how I expected them to. Okay at the front when open, but
I removed the hinges, glued the lid on and did a pyrography design on it. Then I gave it three coats of lacquer to make it feel really gloss and it became an ornament for the sideboard.
In my next post I will show you the plaque that I'm working on. It was a commission from my wife and it is coming out well.
Just one last thing. My book, "Bossyboots" which is one of my favourites, is free today on Amazon.
