They're much better and less messy than those Jekyll/Hyde collaborations, aren't they ?
I don't understand your question Mark?

The Edwardian Garden at Hestercombe is a rare example of a collaboration between Gertrude Jekyll, plantswoman, and Edward Lutyens, architect. That's why they have Lutyens' benches.

I use Morgan Timber as they're the ones the NT use, so I get a discount, and sell nice FSC joinery quality oak.

I also use Rother Valley Timber for stuff like quality birch-faced-ply and general timber...

For exotics, use Timberline in Tonbridge.

This guy's an amazing woodworker, lots of interesting videos to watch. This one he shows briefly how he routes out for the brace on a large door at around 5:24.

Speaking of quality carpentry and working with good materials, today I resurrected the third bay of our compost heap with recycled pallets from the stone delivery.

Neat !
I just brought the two 'summer' wheels for the Fiesta up from the cellar. That gives me a useful job to do tomorrow or Tuesday during my 'holiday'. I think the snow risk is now over.

I've spent the afternoon assembling PCBs - Maida HV regulators, Cathode Current Sinks and simple LV regulated power supplies.

I've got tomorrow booked as leave so, if Mr. UPS actually makes an appearance, I should finish the boards and be able to start the final assembly of the Transcendent Masterpiece 300B HPA project - next step on that build is to install and test a pair of Andrew's DHT filament supplies.

It snowed here today. Not such that it would prove lack of traction.
Resistance isn't futile it's V / I.
