That's one thing I'm definitely not guilty of.

I'm a dab hand on the bodgeridoo though.

As one who has, after years of practice, become an ace at turning perfectly good timber into matchwood and sawdust, I can only admire his workmanship and the fact he still has all his fingers :goggleeyes:

Pure genius. Just working with his hands and very simple hand tools, he never even stopped when it honked down with rain!!!  :claphappy: :claphappy: :claphappy:

I reckon he could build a rebuilt WC/BOB in an afternoon for us  :D

Not even any sign of plans either, so he must carry that complicated design in his head.

Amazing man.

I liked the way he made the first cuts after tying the block of wood to a tree  ;)

You are quite right about the blood stains, but the wood is Padauk and a piece that size over in the UK would cost a fortune.

The years have been good to me, it was the weekends that did the damage.

That's a new one on me.

Is Paduk a hard wood? Where's it native to?
