Pretty magnificent looking work there hendie. Shame about the missing window but I reckon you could have instated it without mishap or misadventure.

See - the solution is simple - just make up some crap! 😀

 

I do this all the time, please see my Flying Banana for good examples.

That looks the real business Hendie

 

This ciggie paper to which you refer

 

Blimey isnt that expensive huh

 

When I were a fag user (American cousins, do please look this up. It may not be what you think  :)  ) I gave up when the price rose to 78 pence for twenty

 

Looking at the shelf in my local shop I see over six  pounds for twenty

 

eek!

And my faux pas (yer actual French there) today occurred during the mowing of the front lawn.

The rotary blade motor mower picked up a stone and shattered one of the bay windows. Oops.

 

Nice work up above there, Hendie. Shame about the window, at least it's not a disaster.

I have no doubt a fix will be forthcoming and that it will be worth the wait.

And there is your answer, hendie. Just stick a lump off basswood to the side, and when it's on display, you can say the Pete threw a stone through the window, and you are waiting for the glazier to come and fix it.

It's a fair cop, but society is to blame.

I wanna see my brief, Copper!

I think I'll stick with the one I have.

Captain Underpants could be my alter ego though,

Rather like Dom deLuise in the Cannonball Run (1981)

I seem to have missed out on a whole bunch of shenanigans over the last few weeks!

Look on the bright side Hendie, at least you missed a window out. Much better than putting one in where it shouldn't be!

Thankfully the doors are completely separate entities, otherwise who knows what botch up I could have managed with those!

 

on the bright side,  the machine shop guys came through and the side frame is winging it's way back to them as I type for rework.

If things go well, I may have the side frame back by the end of the week
