Hi BL,
Way after!! Hurricanes provided firewood only and the grounds needed just a little gentle tidying-up afterwards.

Good advice. Old recycled timber, nails screws warts an' all were largely used in most of my constructions. Nice holster in pic with neat workshop & empty shelves! In MOH's world empty shelves exist for only a few nanoseconds after they are installed. One cannot deploy a camera in that time.

The green tool in my left hand is a Metabo jigsaw. With a few rechargeable batteries I have portable Metabo angle-grinder, drill and circular saw as well for use around the grounds away from power points. Bigger tools are mains or petrol driven of course and live in our barn.

Intra-oral measurements are in microns or hundredths of a millimeter for certain things. Yes, it's nice to look up at the day's end and tackle something measured merely in mm.

Those shelves were empty because I just finished that part of the workbench. Those shelves were filled rather fast, not in a few nanoseconds but not much longer. Storage is always a problem with me, never enough. Half my equipment is mobile and now I'm running out of parking space. Maybe a parking meter will help.

Now that dates you, BL. For I suppose ten years ago now in this neck-o-the-woods parking meters were replaced by solar powered street daleks which dispense tickets for display.
Small & different, MOH requested I replace a Bridge trophy plinth which had gone missing. Simple design for the reapplication of plaques, I stuck a number of bits of teak together, turned them and oiled the result only, no gloss black, which is usual.

Dentists usually break intra-oral fixed bridges up into manageable segments to reduce spans between abutments. A mouth is an even wetter place to place a bridge in than our garden and a three-missing-teeth gap between supporting abutment teeth is about the limit that will last any reasonable time, say a dozen to fifteen years.
Nineteen years ago I fitted by far my largest bridge in our garden spanning the narrows on our lake, some 7 meters or 22 feet. Unlike the recent donkey shelter I selected appropriate preserved timbers and to date the structure shows no deterioration anywhere.

Great work Kirbstone, the plaque and the bridge is some fine woodworking skills.
