    Did anyone notice that..I've placed the nail holes on the side pieces, in an area that would be less prone to breakage when bending ???

    remember to fill the nail holes with aluminum dowel rod and black epoxy to keep the look of nails... it's an old trick I picked up somewhere along the line.

    Mixed Ebony dust into some 2 part epoxy to make it black and cemented in pieces of alloy needle.

    You do interesting threads Prince Timbuck ! Watched the BBC channel on dish as they reported on the event. It is amazing what these Royalists are prepared to do, to claim their spots along the route. I suppose I am not much better typing on a forum about ukuleles. He He .The Plankulele, or the Holelele is going to be interesting, and I am holding thumbs for the bending exercise. Thank You. By the way what did you coat your outside workbench with?? Looking at my screen it looks like the colour of Red Oxide, but that is probably not what you used, as your shed sports the same colour?
