  1. Sorry JJ, busy busy here. Three please, pm your postal addy & price, I'll put a cheque in tomm. Ta v'much!
  2. Great work as always JJ, put me down for a few;
  3. Great reading, good reasearch and good advice.
  4. That sounds seriously psychedelic LE! Can I have a few pints or puffs of what he's on?
  5. Hey there Coops! My wee problem is like a broken fingernail compared to what you went through, it's a great opportunity to get stuff done that I wouldn't have wasted time on otherwise!

    Thanks Pierre, it's not the first time & this was sort of self inflicted too...nine hole boots laced up tight help the rehab alot.
  6. Yo JK! Howz it hanging? I often used to think of you on my regular trips to Paris, if I was forced to live in a city, Paris would be it...bet you're having a stomping time?!
  7. Getting too old to party with teenagers LE, well the body is but the mind disagrees...anyway, the dare was unfair!

    I reckon conditions have improved for the ceps LE...here's hoping.

    The steambending is a really interesting subject LE, it suits my style...over to the woody forum!
  8. Sorry, been off on a life tangent AND creating what I reckon is gonna be the coolest workshop ever...nightclub included!Hope you're all well?

    Edit/steambending...I was in the process of felling Oak and Sweet Chestnut (before mishap) for convertion by a mobile sawmill into many different dimensions and will be using green timber for bending (being very much more pliable than seasoned or kd'd timber) which will permit bending of much larger section, am working on an integrated water heating system for the bending, LOTS to discover!
  9. We're no longer a sub section my fellow woodies!! I didn't not turn up deliberately JJ, life as usual exploded & I lost a few months...so who's doing what? I got me a new camera!
  10. That's the cleanest version I ever heard Leo!
  11. Have torn ankle ligaments & achilles tendon (nope, not telling how) and am seriously peed off 'cos the ceps are waiting and I can't get around the woods & forests in plaster & wheelchair...is there any kind soul in Limousin who has a quad bike they're not using? Can I beg, borrow, steal, hire or buy one?
  12. P'raps not too helpful L/E but create a small beach next to pool and advertise it as a beach themed pool? X
  13. Why thank you kind sir/ma'am!
  14. Spent a couple of days getting down and dirty with approx 1000m2 of a pond surround HEAVILY infested with brambles. The brushcutter stands about 1,8m high & the brambles reached close to 3m in places! With good kit, a good mashing technique and and alot of scratces the job was done and cleared in less than two days. HOWEVER, if you're going into ground like that, try & scout it first for hornets & wasps nests, an hour spent carefully watching and listening could save alot of grief!

    Uncovering natural regeneration that was well hidden was a bonus.

    Edit; don't know if piccies have come up or not? I'm only seeing the photobucket html codes.
  15. Please humour me a little...the location is very, very nice...skills and materials readily available, is it worth the time and effort? Would a tree house holiday sell? TIA.

    Edit...and to diversify, quote of the year for me and first time I've seen it..."The mind is its own place, and in itself can make a Heaven of Hell, a Hell of Heaven.". No I'm not drunk. Nice one Clair.
