I took a quick walk round the stock shed to look for something I know is there and yet again… it’s been moved. The wood that is.
The stock shed fairy has had another change around!
I know we have the weekly challenge of finding places to put new stock… and at the same time Peter is a complete neat freak and refuses to just pile something up infront of something else if it isn’t the right species or thickness or country of origin or something.
So just when I think I know my way around… I discover I don’t.
Funnily enough, I don’t even mind because I never get tired of snooping around in the stock shed.
It’s a great source of inspiration for me. I usually end up getting way too overexcited about all the things I could make or build the following weekend, at which point all the guys in the yard look at each other and roll their eyes…
and then the coffee wears off and I decide to just go and take pictures and wait for someone else to be inspired to make things instead.
P.S. 3 things I love about the stock shed…
1. When we stand boards up so that you can actually see what they look like… I know it’s not how we should store timber (thank you Peter) but it is SO much more interesting to look at this way
2. The old mining bucket that makes me feel Lilliputian.
3. The Sycamore. We take it for granted as a tree and yet it makes a beautiful, affordable wood.
Ok 4 things..
4. I just realised I LOVE that we are tagging & measuring & listing all our boards… it’s yet another thing I can get a bit overexcited about… having a new stock system!!!!!
Ok, I’m finished now. Thanks for visiting !
I’ve said it before and I’m not afraid to say it again… SUCH a great website for people that like to make stuff with wood http://www.thewoodwhisperer.com/
