About 10 days ago I woke up with a muscle spasm in the lower back :causing me a lot of pain :(. I have been walking around like drunken crab and have done no work on my ukes since...I looked in the shed today as my back is now getting better...What a mess! I've got to clean up before I can start again..My Son has been in there while I was laid up and done few jobs for himself..Tools scattered around, saw dust everywhere (mostly left by me):o
I recon it will take a couple of hours before I can get my bench cleared ready to start up again.

You need to get yourself an apprentice Ken. I believe apprenticeships were invented by craftsmen so they didn't have to clean up the mess.

I've been an apprentice in the 1950's and 60's ....and no one would allow me to treat an apprentice the same way I learned my trade...Hit on my head with a wooden hand brush ...thumped in the stomach...slapped Across the face... swore at violently...made to make tea for 5 guys..I suppose I was a bit of a cheeky youth.:)

Anyway I've been making short visits into the workshop and doing a bit of work..the pain in the back is still there but I can now move about more freely..i just pre-bent some linings for a couple of sopranos..and now I'm back in the easy chair having a cuppa...The wife has recently got a new puppy dog (shihtzu) and I'm having to dogsit the little git :(while She goes out shopping...Yes! life is tough.;)

Would that make the dog a gitzu?

Thanks for that Howard ;) Here is a pic of the little Git! so you can see what I'm up against..All the "French Polishing" has gone on the back burner for a while.

"got a new puppy dog (shihtzu)"

Yes, they do, but they grow out of it.

Hope your back will soon be better, Ken.
