Well, Derek may have flown off to hotter climes than the stormy UK but I"ve just come back from the hottest date in town and you don"t need a ticket for it. I"m talking about the 21st Century Furniture II The Arts and Crafts Legacy show at The Millinery Works in Islington, London, where  ...

Would the last remaining passenger please make their way...

I’m counting down the hours and minutes remaining today as I’m off for a while, until the end of next week to be exact, which means Andrea will be keeping you up to date with things that are occurring in the world of F&C. Holidays are when I take time to catch up on some essential reading so I’ve be ...

Well, here I am sitting in the hot seat again - actually Derek has left it merely pleasantly warm – and pondering why it is that when you think you will never get through all the work actually you find that you have, and there was time for a sandwich too, and when you think you have all the time in  ...

I’ve just had quick look in my diary at the last couple of days to see if anything interesting has happened in the last few days, and blow me down if there isn’t anything in there. I don’t really do ‘small talk’ especially when I’m flat out and this current issue has been put together in the fast la ...

Just recovered from the show at the weekend. As with all these events the opinions I’ve heard are a mixed bag. It was my first time at this show so had nothing to gauge it on but from my perspective it was perfect. Not too many people meant I had a chance to wander around a bit and chat to folk who  ...

Just about managed to push the door open to the workshop this morning to find a mountain of shavings that look suspiciously like woodturning shavings. MB brought reinforcements with him on Tuesday so we were out-gunned on this occasion I’m afraid. Big chaps as well they were. Not much else to report ...

I’ve been out of the office for a couple of days so today, Wednesday, has that Monday morning feeling. Don’t get me wrong I like Mondays it’s just that this week is going to fly past without being able to tick off the number of things on my list that add up to a week well spent. Time to prioritise f ...

I’ll get this out of the way first and keep it short as I know it’s not to everyone’s taste. Peter Crouch. I know one of them shouldn’t have counted but it was only a warm-up. A secret weapon – use sparingly. Right that’s got that out the way. Back to business. An absolute beast of a saw came in to  ...

Tuesdays and Thursdays come round a bit too quick for my liking. They are our official blog days. Most of the time it’s just filler for me as I can’t imagine anyone is particularly interested in what state the magazine is in on these days or weather I’m in the workshop or not. You’ll be pleased to h ...
