Putting Another Lid on Another It

More bed base missioning today. This time we knocked together the… er… I was going to write “lid for the other half of the matching pair”. However, given the wonkosity of my carpentry, I think that would be a bit of an over-enthusiastic claim. So let’s just call it “the lid for the one on the other side”.

Me doing some sawing. My carpentry may be shite, but I’m quite chuffed at the fact I’ve done all the wood cutting with a folding Swedish Laplander saw, as recommended for buschcraft by Ray Mears. Makes it all feel a bit more ‘crafty’

Mazza trimming some edges. No fancy planes or sandpaper for us lot. In keeping with the Ray Mears style saw used for cutting, we’re using a Frost’s Mora wood-carving knife for all the evening up of rough edges, etc.
