Boy! some people are slave drivers! :-0))
I took a tea break at 3.30 today and was reminded that our first guests were due shortly.
OK, He might be right but it is my birthday today so the tea ,maybe, was deserved?
Today after about three days of preparation I finished the work surfaces in the kitchen of the gite. Donna and I think they look great and it will be interesting what feedback we get on them.
It seems an age to sort out the surfaces but as they started so raw (as a sliced tree) they took a lot of preparation just to get them to a workable state.
The grain of the elm is fantastic although there is some wood worm damage.
The woodworm is not a problem to us. We think, especially as the wood is local and stored in Monflanquin for so long it has a history to it that IKEA, MFI or Kitchens for us cannot provide.
The dilema is shall we fill the holes or let them remain?
All (all!!!) that is left to do is shelve the spaces below the surfaces for the wicker baskets. I am sure we wont put doors on until the winter.
