Much progress today, thanks largely to the arrival of the new and vastly superior Makita LiIon Drill/Screwdriver. It’s so vastly superior to the ‘Challenge’ piece of cack that I’ve been using that it’s quite, quite astonishing. Although, that said, the Challenge one does seem to have higher torque available in ‘screw’ mode than the Makita.
Anyhow, with the help of my best beloved and after much trimming of crappy bits of timber (because I was somewhat short) – I managed to get the back piece completed. The whole boxy bit of it is now screwed together with thirty billion screws.
It’s even more or less square. It’s not perfect, but then I wasn’t going for perfect, especially since I’ve loaned out my chop saw and thus cutting lots of bits of wood to the same size is actually quite difficult. Anyhow, it’s pleasingly together and now the next exciting task is to make the top window bit. For which I need… more pallets.
Kathryn’s repotted the plants, so they’re getting ready to make their way out there…
And in other news I’ve (finally) got around to adding:
