    Thanks David and Tenjin it is a really enjoyable project and for me has a lot of the skills i need to make almost anything in the future. I have just got to the stage where dovetails fit “off the saw” and now have reasonable confidence in mortice and tenons. I thinks the next big challenge for me will be the world of compond angles and chairs. Though i did make the garden bench with my daughter. It is wonderful that i can still learn new skills at 57 thanks to Pauls vision and the internet all the way here in Australia🙂

    I’m 52 and very much in the same boat.

    My dovetails definitely aren’t good straight off the saw though. More practice needed here.

    That’s good with me, woodworking is how I relax. Therapy really. 😀

    Good luck with your woodworking in 2021.

    Darren.
