It seemed no one at the company had bothered to tell me that I had been booked for a 5 day course in Dynamic Positioning system maintenance in Norway! So I had to spend more time away from my family just after getting home. The worst thing is that the course wasn't very good and should only have lasted 2 or three days at the most. So all in all, a sad waste of time.
Today we had Asgers class mates over for a late celebration of his birthday, this involved driving various vehicles ranging from a garden tractor to a motorcycle with a sidecar. All the kids liked it and had a great time. After the supper I was able to make it into the workshop to finally continue my build of the Barnsley Hayrake table.
I made a mortise for the two arms of the central lower stretcher. And a mortise and tenon for the cross piece at the end of the aforementioned stretcher. I had almost one and a half hours out there, and it almost recharged my internal batteries. Woodworking is a great stress reliever to me.
Tomorrow I hope to continue and maybe even finish one end of the lower stretcher.
I just stumbled over this old picture of my daughter Laura and our old dog.
The fruits of a nice evening in the workshop.
