Do you remember the driftwood Danny brought back from the beach
- well he finally got around to trying to do something with it. They were quite big pieces and they needed to dry out very thoroughly.
It took a fair bit of effort for him to cut it with the saw but he did manage. I think he definately needs to eat more porridge, lol. (only joking Dan!!!)
He then had to put it in the microwave to dry out - he has been told how long for and how to do it. So that is what he did. The only trouble is after a couple of days the piece he had cut and dried started to crack with the result that it was wasted. We think he might have dried it out too quickly or something!
Not one to be too disheartened he tried again and hopefuly this piece will be ok for him to take to his woodwork class on wednesday evening.
I thought I'd put a few pictures up.
Look at that lovely grain.
Here is my attempt at a more abstract picture :)) The microwave on the right is what he used to dry the wood. The black legs you see there are his workmate which he cut the wood on..
And let's face it - it's all sawdust when you get right down to it :))
I wonder how he will get on on wednesday evening!!
