Project 3, production time

Rather than show another load of timber before and after the sawmill, I thought the photo of me on Edward’s bike would be more interesting. It’s amazing what you see these guys transporting on their bikes. I saw one guy fully loaded with pineapples yesterday, he could barely make headway up the sloping road.

The photos hopefully show Lillian’s new lathe, shaving horse and work bench. Also Saphan and Julius ripping along the toolrest for the lathe. The wood is really tough to rip saw. I tried their method, typically African, and I was surprised how easy it was.
