That is a really nice job, just perfect. You must be very pleased.
Its so nice to see a Craftsman at work.
Many, many years ago a colleague and I were walking up the road one lunchtime and passed a construction site. The old cinema had been knocked down and an 'Iceland' store was being built - there was an enormous plain brick wall going up.
We both stopped and went "Wow" - that brickwork was stunning, absolutely perfect, the Brickie was a Craftsman.
It shows and is appreciated by those who dabble in these sort of crafts but never develop proper skills.
Thanks all, the thing is I am not far off 70 now and I won’t be doing this for that much longer
I would like to pass on some of my skills/knowledge to a youngster whose keen to learn
There’s none about, their glued to their phones and just want the money, I’ve had them in my workshop and to be honest there a liability and don’t concentrate, not a place to be with highly dangerous machines as I well know, it’s a shame but I will take my knowledge with me when I curl my toes up.
