DCBE, Day 1

Unfortunately, I am blogging this week from my iPad, which sucks. My plan to deal with the limitations is to give a very brief commentary, followed by a bunch of un-captioned photos. When I get back to Spain, I'll do a proper write up.

(One of my goals for this blog has always been not to apopogize, so sorry about that.)

Alex picked me up in Munich early yesterday, and we made it about half way before his car broke down. ADAC was kind enough to hook us up with a loaner until his car is fixed, so we finally got here after 19 hours.

Today was fantastic. Alex, Jonas and I decided to build Roorkee chairs, and Pedder got here and is building a M&T stool. Olav is unfortunately stuck in France, but hopes to be here in a day or two.

We milled a ton of spalted sycamore today, and tomorrow we will mill a little more elm for Roorkees.

I also will build a pair of staked saw benches from an old elm plank I found in Jonas' barn.

We have a buttload of leather. Enough for at least six chairs, maybe more. All different stuff. I also have some #8 duck canvas that would make nice chairs, but I dropped it in the mud while extracting my suitcase from the back of the ADAC car last night. Oops.

Enjoy some photos, you'll love tomorrow.

    1. Hi Ben! Too bad you're not here. We could have had a five year reunion!

      Jens actually will pop in tomorrow for the day. I look forward to seeing him.
