India inspired day bed for caravan pavilion

Some mattresses from our old campervan dictate the size of this lounger.

Made mostly from douglas fir with oak side bars.

Loading up to transport to its home.

Tired now.

Workshop - outdoor section


Pigments in old guitar

10' work bench replacement

Outdoor part of workshop (behind the tree peony.)

working on some old weather beaten benches.
Under the outdoor canopy is a good place if it rains.
Specially if I've just applied varnish.

Garden table and bench refurb

This table, made from elm got quite dirty after about 7 years,
so I sanded the grime off and added a few coats of Le Tonkinois varnish

same with this bench

to this finish to bring out the grain.
