Workshop space

Workshop spaceFor all kinds of reasons, this last weekend has been a lazy one for me, so far as progress on Lady Jane goes.

One thing that has been progressed slightly is the sides for the workshop space.

If you look carefully at the picture, you can see the bottom of the boards is slightly narrower than the top. This is in preparation for the sideboards.

The recent wet and windy weather has helped emphasise just how important the side pieces will be in keeping us sheltered from the elements when working in there.

I know it doesn't look it, but that was a full day's work for both Fred and I. Getting the first of the side boards on either side measured up and correctly cut.

Why is it, I wonder, that the tough looking stuff takes almost no time but the simple looking tasks take forever?
