Is this the best spot to work a lathe ever?
and these are the porringers I made on the first of four days turning, based on an Elizabethan example excavated in Southwark quite close to the Globe Theatre.
and then I went out boating with Phil and Deb who do replica leather vessels.
after four happy days turning and evenings socialising it was off to France leaving the white cliffs of Dover behind.
and Bourlogne castle was our worksite. Quite a place. This is to be the venue for the major international bronze age exhibition we have been building the replica boat for.
Sometimes work can feel hard low paid with no holiday or sick pay but then there are times like these when I look at friends in offices and can barely believe how lucky I am.
