That's a really beautiful job Spana - as one who has only just mastered sawing in a straight line, :roll: I wish I lived closer, I would come and have lessons

It's great to see things being done the 'right' way by a craftsman.

Welcome back Spana, you were missed. ;)

Love the wood roof truss. Watching a craftsman at work is always interesting.

Glad you've got your access to PK sorted! :lol:
Vista isn't as good as it was made out to be, as lots of people have found out. The new one (can't remember what it's called) is supposed to have ironed out all the glitches that Vista has. My son has the Beta version & he's really impressed with it. :grin:
Happy in Hampshire!
