Chapter 1 "Tami, menginginkannya, itu seperti masuk terowongan yang tak dapat dilihat cahaya diujungnya" •
Like a car crash I can see but I just can't avoid
Like a plane I've been told I never should board
Like a film that's so bad but I gotta stay till the end
Let me tell you now, it's lucky for you that we're friends.
The twelfth prompt on the #burntmarch challenge list brought by @woodburncorner and @walnuthollow is ‘fun to make’ for 23rdMarch. Those of you who’ve been good (or mad!) enough to follow me for a while and look at my posts may recall that I’ve done a few guitar and ukulele projects over the last few months. (In case anyone’s interested, I’ve added a few photos here if you scroll through ➡️) . Anyway, I recently picked up a child’s guitar in a charity shop which I bought to add to my ‘project’ pile (aka hoarder corner of the shed), and sanded it off a few weeks ago ready to doodle out a design and get burning. The day after sanding though, I was contacted by the lovely @springledesigngifts (who’s kindly said I can post these pictures!) asking if I could do her a personalised ukulele similar to the weedy sea dragon one listed in my Etsy shop. After a little pow-wow of ideas, we decided upon a decorative piece as opposed to a playable instrument, and I used the child’s guitar as the medium for a unique wall hanging! The gift is to be given from a little boy to his Dad, with a personal message burnt in and the guitar strings replaced by jute string, with a thick rope hanger to look like a guitar strap. All proceeds from the sale have been donated back to the charity. So much fun to make, and it made my go out a few days later and buy a violin to refurbish and Cowshed-ify … which is currently at the sanding down stage. Watch this space!

Everything is still a bit messy and disorganized during these soccer days but little by little things are coming together. You working on anything that you’re only able to get to for a few minutes here and there? .
By the way this mask is awesome and always comfortable. Not to mention it accents well with this #purpleheart . 👍🏼#tysonmoorebuilds#magicmallet
Time for another #instantreplay of this maple dance I caught on camera while drilling with this forstner bit. Did you see it? Isn’t that crazy? .
And yes... I know a drill press will make everything so much easier. I just don’t want to spend a lot on one and yet also don’t want to just buy a cheap one either. So while I continue to debate what’s best to do, I’ll just keep using my drill. 😎 #tysonmoorebuilds#replay#slowmo#woodwork
