Silver Seagul 1st installation

Last day of January and we kept to schedule on fitting the Jewellery shop. The customer is really pleased with the results. The finished shop looks just like my sketches which must be good!

Fitting was difficult as the builder, that came in after I had taken my measurements, plastered around the window recesses. This meant that the cabinet were nearly 50mm too wide! We spent all of yesterday morning chipping off the new plasterwork so we could fit them, but that is life and the finished result warranted the work.

Open Studios sign up

Cor, it's cold! Luckily we have good heating in the workshop but just to walk the 15 metres over is enough to chill me. Just joined the Woodweb - seems to be an American group with lots of useful information on techniques etc.

We are happy to say that we will be taking part in another Open Studios Notts in the spring of 2013, together with other artist/craftsmen in North Nottinghamshire.

This year we will be open for two consecutive weekends  25th - 27th May (including the bank holiday) and Friday 31st May - 2nd June. Hope some of you will call in.
