Time to move inside.
Its been so cold recently that its come to the point where i need to move inside our house, trying to concentrate while your fingers are numb is virtually impossible and in turn starts to affects the quality of work which one makes, i am also waiting for fresh stocks of materials including antique ivory which will be used for the piece i am currently working on. Without giving to much away this piece of work will be highly detailed including all of the contents some of which i am currently working on at the moment hopefully i will share some progress photos of this piece very soon.
With Christmas just around the corner i have also been busy building up my wood stock with logs, with the price of gas and electricity forever on the increase burning logs at least for myself is a much cheaper way of keeping our house warm, and I'm lucky in that i still have 3 open fires in the house, these logs should hopefully keep us warm for the next 3 months or more.
The Cobblers shop is moving along at a slow pace as i tend to just work on this for an hour or two in between making the other pieces... who knows maybe next year it might be completed!!
I have also started looking into making themed room boxes complete with furniture and accessories these would be designed around my own ideas and contain all unique pieces relevant to the theme which it is based upon.
Have a great and safe week everyone. Tony.
