Back from the holidays
12 April 2012
Hello everyone, well Easter has come and gone and the good old British weather persists, ever a topic for conversation. My wife and I had an enjoyable if blusterous break in the ancient town of Rye in East Sussex and myself never really able to put work or at least woodwork aside, I enjoyed studying the architecture and wooden structures for detail such as the brackets, corbels, pargetting (decorative mortar render) and jettied upper storeys found on the timber framed old houses in the town centre. Down at the harbour plenty of examples of boats in various stages of repair or disrepair and huge timber reinforced fibreglass moulds for creating new boat hulls. All this information goes in of course and will be regurgitated at some point no doubt, as my erstwhile deputy Simon, referred to in his last blog as my Ďfactoidsí. I suppose I am an information sponge, largely useless stuff but itís all there waiting to be disseminated on a hopefully willing audience, maybe thatís why Iím an editor? A desire to pass on knowledge that Iíve learnt along the way, yes I suppose soÖ.
Until next time, Anthony.Contact Anthony Bailey
