Wood for the new head and back

Stephen has cut out the head outline for me.

He had no suitable wood for the top of the body, but, in an amazing stroke of luck, I found a scaffolding plank loitering on its own across the road from my workshop, the right width and thickness. The guys refurbishing the bar opposite said I could have it.

Sawing and planing it, a job that would have taken minutes with the right machinery, took me much longer by hand. I am no woodworker.

I hope I am not turning into a Dad-in-shed.
