I’ve always found that Helen and I make a good team and I’m certainly very lucky to have her many skills at my disposal. She’s the sort of person who can put her hand to pretty much anything she needs to learn but her specific training was in design and technical drawing. She’s worked on many great projects in an architectural office creating designs and plans for shops, homes and an award winning hospice.
If I’m keen to try out a new idea for a vice for instance then I can talk it through with her and off she’ll go putting my thoughts it to action; sourcing parts and creating new ones in technical drawings to discuss further and have manufactured.
At the start of each bench build I get presented with full working plans showing every detail so I can just merrily follow along. I get shown what drill bits to use, the depth of holes and every intricacy of a vice installation.
So Helen I have to ask… what the hell is this?
This is what I got presented with this week. Some would say that your heart just ain’t in it!
