Hello all, I hope you’re all well? Mark is currently in the workshop so I thought I would take the opportunity to say hello. It has been a long and arduous week and I’m very much looking forward to the weekend, I have to say. We’re just putting the finishing touches to the January issue and I certai ...

The week is already well underway and I am only just getting over my mammoth journey to Red Rose Woodturners. As mentioned, it is a lovely club and I had a blast there on Saturday – but, and I did mention this – the journey there took around 8 hours. Tedium personified. And the prices charged at ser ...

I am writing this but also pondering a 296-mile journey to visit Red Rose Woodturning group up in Lancashire. I have visited this group before and they are a vibrant and lovely lot, and I will no doubt have another great time meeting them all again. But there is one drawback for me – the journey. I  ...

The chilly weather is definitely upon us. It is interesting to note that many are now back in the workshop working on all kinds of projects that have been put off while the better weather was here – well, if it ever was this year. I know many are working on presents for Christmas. Don’t worry; I hav ...

I have had a thoroughly great time at Yandles, and more recently the European and D&M shows. I have met and said hello to many friends, and also tried to help when asked to do so. I think this is one of the great aspects of shows; people are always willing to chat, enquire and help where possible. T ...

Hello all, Well, things have certainly been rather busy since I last wrote my blog, and I’m not just talking about work! Yes, last Thursday evening our flat decided to flood. A mains pipe burst under the bath and before we knew it, we were 3 inches deep in water and rising. Scary stuff. Anyway, we e ...

Good afternoon! Mark is setting up for the D&M Tool Show today so I am on my own today. We are just tying up some loose ends on the Christmas issue, and fingers crossed, we should easily meet our deadline. We are frantically trying to get ahead as we need to get another issue done before Christmas – ...

I spent the weekend at the European Woodworking show and it was great meeting so many of you there. I had a good time and seeing so many of you with bags of goodies, it seems that I was not the only one who parted with some money and bought some tools and accessories. I must admit to having known ab ...

Good morning from a very blustery Lewes! I have just spoken to Mark and he is currently on his way to the European Woodworking Show to set up and prepare for tomorrow’s start. Apparently it is just as miserable in Essex and there are plenty of weather warning out for the weekends. Definitely a good  ...
